... a new idea ...




this old luggage from Bismarck times will also be part of the exhibition next year, please create Bismarck concerned luggage labels (not bigger than 8 x 15cm) for this purpose and I will glue them to it. Maximum two per artists please. The upper part with the old luggage labels will not be touched.
Angela Behrendt has sent a luggage etiquette in leather with a stiched helmet inside, so I came to this idea, maybe you like this way of presentation.
