This weekend Vincent and Karine are in Brive in the south west of France attending the town's famous book festival called La Foire du Livre de Brive-la-Gaillarde. For the past thirty years, it has taken place every year over three days during the first weekend of November. It has come to be the largest literary event in France after the Paris Book Fair. It affords an opportunity for the public to meet the authors and have their books signed. Karine is attending as author of "Monsieur est mort". Here are a couple photos from the event. Vincent's is a bit blurry.

One of the great European cultural highlights in 2015 will be the exhibition of 50 masterpieces by Paul Gauguin at the Fondation Beyeler in Riehen, Switzerland. To promote the ticket pre-sale, actors Udo Kier and Vincent were in Riehen today before the media to read from autobiographical writings of Gauguin, alternately the one in German, the other in French (You can view it at this youtube link). This exhibition brings together paintings from leading international museums and private collections. Gauguin's paintings have become icons of modern art and  are some of the most significant and valuable cultural treasures in the world. The exhibition will be held from February 8 through June 28, 2015. On a personal note, I appreciate Udo Kier's screen presence and have enjoyed him in many of Lars Von Trier's films (I manage Stellan Skarsgrd's web site among others). I was happy to see Udo receive an award for "an extraordinary personality in international cinema" at the Munich Film Festival this summer.
