THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO MID-JANUARY!

The ever-increasing numbers of Corona cases and the recommendation by the Robert-Koch-Institute to avoid large events have contributed to our decision to postpone this event. We will inform you of a new date, when available.  We will continue to plan small events for the holiday season!

AWCH HolidayParty2021 Invite

You are invited to our Annual Holiday Party on Saturday, December 11, 2021. This year we are holding a ‘cultural & culinary’ event.

Art Tour

TOYEN (1902–1980) is considered one of the most important Czech female artists of the twentieth century. She was a pioneer both in her home city of Prague, as well as in her Parisian exile. Known for consistently pushing the limits, TOYEN challenged preconceived stereotypes in both her art and her life, whether with regard to common gender roles, prevailing styles, themes or techniques. In the process, she created an oeuvre that was as fascinating as it was diverse. TOYEN’s images, as poetic as they are provocative, oscillate between reality and imagination, the seductive and the cryptic. For more information see TOYEN.

You have the choice: You can either join us for both the art tour and dinner, or come for the reception and dinner only. Reservations for the art tour are on a first come, first served basis. There will be two simultaneous tours in English, each limited to 20 people.

Cost: €42 for Art & Dinner; €32 for Dinner only. The cost includes the reception (one glass of prosecco or juice) and a three-course dinner, with or without the one-hour guided TOYEN tour in English.

Payment: Money should be transferred at the time of registration to the AWCH bank account (IBAN: DE75 2069 0500 0000 9117 71) with the reference “Holiday Party”. Deadline for payment is November 27.
