A Special Mention

The Blog & the German Design Award 2015

Just over one year ago we launched this Blog as the digital companion to the BMW Art Guide by Independent Collectors. By now, the blog has established itself as a platform for thoughtfully curated content including individual collection visits, personal interviews with collectors from around the world and insights into the topics that keep the art world buzzing.

We are happy to inform you today that the BMW Art Guide Blog has been nominated for the German Design Award that awards prizes for exceptional design trends. Within the category Excellent Communications Design – Audiovisual and Digital Media, we received the distinction Special Mention that honors projects whose design exhibited particularly noteworthy aspects or solutions.

It is a great motivation for us that our aim to make the world of collecting a bit more accessible is receiving a wider recognition and witnesses a daily increasing readership. In collaboration with an international team of authors, we explore why people decide to live with art and intend to show the potential art can bear – especially by sharing it with others. We have met art enthusiasts and visited collections in Hungary, China, Mexico and Turkey (to name a few) where we have gathered anecdotes and stories, that portrait an area of the art world which is normally marked by discretion.

The positive feedback we received over the past months has been very inspirational and we would like to thank you for your support and hope you will enjoy our future posts just as much.

From now on you can also browse through all the nominations of the German Design Award in the following Online Exhibition.
