What They Say?

Was andere über uns sagen

"I think the BikiniARTmuseum will be really a big big success. It’s so surprising that no one did it up to now. You have museums from everything you could even imagine, and this is so obvious, it’s so feministic, it’s so political in times where people again wear burkas and things like this. It’s really an area with so many art pieces which are not defined - no one did it up to now - your are geniuses."

Art expert in demand worldwide, deeply involved in Miami through museum, university & Art Basel work

„A swimsuit or bikini is a woman's most personal piece of clothing. The world's first BikiniARTmuseum finally gives the swimwear industry as a whole the important historical dimension it deserves.“

2018, voted best swimwear label in 2018

"I was happy to be involved in the concept, as the creation of a swimwear museum has been a long-awaited dream for me. The BikiniARTmuseum will exhibit a unique swimsuits collection with extremely valuable historical items from all over the world.“

Ghislaine Rayer, Paris
Fashion expert, owner of one of the world's largest lingerie and swimwear collection with Patrice Gaulupeau, Author of the book "Bikini, la Légende“.

Bademode ist Freiheit. Menschen, die einen Moment der Freiheit genießen. Wenn eine Frau einen Bikini kaufen möchte, dann denkt sie an Schönstmögliches, hat positive Vibes. Man denkt an Strand, ans Meer, an den Himmel oder an die Liebe.“

Jacqueline de Biase
Salinas Bademode, Owner

„Museum war gestern – BikiniARTmuseum ist heute. Nicht verstaubt, sondern informativ, frech und vor allem hintergründig. Man erfährt viel, wird mit einbezogen und damit bestens unterhalten. Wertvolle Exponate, James Bond lässt grüßen – Lifestyle und Fashion! Geschichte, Geschichten und ein Zukunftskonzept, das herausragt! Ein Museum als angesagter Treffpunkt!“

Michael Stocks
2018, Südamerika-Korrespondent der ARD

Der Bikini ist ein Maß für die Stellung der Frau in der jeweiligen Gesellschaft. Dort wo das weibliche Geschlecht nicht die gleichen Rechte besitzt, wird Frauen immer vorgeschrieben, wie viel Stoff sie beim Baden zwingend anhaben müssen. Verfehlungen werden bestraft."

Harald Klein
German Ambassador in Guatemala and Belize, organiser of a major swimwear show for the 2014 Football World Cup in Rio de Janeiro
