BSB meets Art

This year, for the first time, there was a new section at the award evening: BSB meets art.


For my, there is a close connection between art and cosmetics. Because of this, I think a discussion with artists is very interesting


For this year, I was able to win Mr. Kai Teschner for the evening



He was born in 1963  and studied art in Montpellier, Duesseldorf and Hamburg.

He is an university teacher for free art and acrobatik at the school for music and theater in Hannover.

Some of this building high wall paintings are painted at conflict-filled places, which are affected by the problems of the people living there.
