Behind the Scenes of Nuit des Bains

Our first fundraising cultural event in Geneva on Wednesday 14 March was a resounding success! Over CHF 2,000 was raised for our GOTV fund for 2012. Sarah Burkhalter, art historian, took an enthusiastic group of DACH members and their friends on a private guided tour previewing the exhibitions at five contemporary art galleries in Geneva's Quartier des Bains, a day before the official Nuit des Bains event (BFAS Blondeau Fine Arts Services, Analix Forever, Mitterrand + Cramer, Xippas Art Contemporain and Blancpain Art Contemporain). Several artists (Robert Montgomery, Janaina Tschäpe and Urs Lüthi) were on hand to speak about their work and answer questions, as were several gallerists (Marc Blondeau, Philippe Davet, Barbara Polla, Renos Xippas and Marie-Claude Stobart). After the tour, half of the group stayed on for a fun and delicious dinner at Restaurant Ou Bien.

This event will be repeated on Wednesday 2 May and Wednesday 12 September. We hope to see you there! This is a project organized for Democrats Abroad by the DACH Cultural Committee - Anne-Shelton Aaron, Sarah Burkhalter, Nicole De Feo, Karen Olson and Maya Samara. Please contact us if you would like to join the committee and/or if you have any suggestions, comments or requests at
