Christo in Berlin
2017: On the evening of February 13, TASCHEN Store Berlin added a prestigious event to the city’s busy Berlinale calendar with a Christo book signing. Hundreds of fans of Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s work flocked to meet the artist, who signed copies of his project books The Floating Piers, The Gates, Mastaba, and Wrapped Reichstag, as well as the Basic Art Edition Christo and Jeanne-Claude and the Collector’s Editions of Christo and Jeanne-Claude, The Gates, and Wrapped Reichstag.
Excited guests young and old included celebrated German actor Udo Kier. Christo and Jeanne-Claude are particularly cherished in Berlin ever since their wrapping of the historic Reichstag in 1995. The project drew more than five million visitors in two weeks.
