Surrealism in Essen - Deyan Yanev in Clowns & Pferde

Deyan Yanev in Clowns & Pferde Essen Germany

Today I visited the gallery Clowns & Pferde in Essen, as I often do. My husband wanted to see the exhibition so I went with him - and was very pleasently surprised! I usually like Clowns & Pferde anyways, but this exhibition is something very different from what I have seen there before.

Cinema Review: Anomalisa

Last Monday we went to a Sneak preview, that is a cinema show where you don't know what you will be seeing, only that it is a film coming into cinemas soon afterwards. The film we saw was called Anomalisa, and it is a stop-motion drama about a self-help author Michael Stone, who travels to Cincinnati to promote his book at a hotel customer service convention.

Coming out of hyper space and hibernation the crew finds itself still in space not knowing where and when they are. The C74 autopilot is approaching a planet. Only basic live support systems are on, as well as the coffee machine, the champagne bucket and the lights!

Hespertalbahn

Some weekends in the year they drive these old diesel or steam locomotives with old wagons a short route from Kupferdreh to the Scheppen old cement factory.
