It was a beautiful Sunday morning in Munich so we decided to go to the last day of the "Reading Andy Warhol" exhibit at Museum Brandhorst. I recommend that you go there on Sundays because the entrance fee is only 1 Euro. Also, if architecture is one of your interests, you should come and see this building as well as the wonderful interior space. The Museum Brandhorst is one of my favorite modern buildings in Munich because its a good contrast with the very old architecture and monuments surrounding it. It is a three storey building with a lot of natural light coming in considering the fact that it looks totally covered with this colorful

By the way, taking photos are not allowed inside the exhibition area. People on guard are watching our every move as if we are going to steal an 8 feet metal installation and shove it in our purse. There are alarms that triggers when you get too close to the artworks mounted on the wall. The key is not stepping on the vent-like holes on the floor unless you want to annoy the
Although there are permanent Andy Warhol paintings on display, this special exhibit showcased all the wonderful books he published as well as his beautifully displayed freehand illustrations.

Here is what I wore during the Museum visit. As you noticed, my skirt is the shorter version of the one I wore in Verona. As usual, I am wearing my favorite coat and shoes to which I am afraid I won't be able to wear in a few months because it started snowing as I am writing this post.
What I'm Wearing:
Dress (used as top) and Skirt: Oskar Osaka

Art for me can be inspiring as well as boring. Artworks that trigger my emotions and imagination are the ones that I appreciate the most. I particularly love the artworks on the lower floor because it was the first time for me to see in person displays from my favorite artists like Jeff Koons, Damien Hirst, David LaChapelle and of course Andy Warhol. I could not imagine them all in one room. But there they were, giving me a visual feast. We ended our day with a nice early dinner at Cafe Flower close to the Museum. It was a great Sunday indeed.
So enough Artsy-Fartsy.
Alles Klar? ALESSKLAR!!!
