Christo – the art of packaging (summary)

After Prime Minister Malu Dreyer, Comedian Otto, mountain legend Reinhold Messner, DDR design icon Josefine von Krepl, self-made man Alex Mutsaars and XY moderator Rudi Cerne, I would like to tell a small story about another VIP personality who I met on a special occasion. I am talking of “object…
