my parents wonderful party was held in the refectory of the former HfG, a design school from 1953 to 1968. Max Bill, the first rector saw the HfG as a continuation of the Bauhaus, so everything we did for the celebration was influenced with that design tradition that is still dominating my families esthetics. My sister J. made Ottl Aicher like posters and postcards, customized to my parents history and I just added a lot of lilac for the costumes, my mothers favorite color ever since and we made a very dada performance as stewardesses with cardboard props, encouraged and directed by our childhoodfriend and extrasister C. Without her, the three of us (sisters) would never have found the way on stage, being completely made for behind the stage activities but our parents really deserved it and we made them happy and proud, at least they pretended to be.
