Project Designers against AIDS

DAA book launch and charity auction this Friday October 29!

With this message we would love to invite you all on October 29 for the presentation of our first book “DAA: The First Decade!” published by Ludion and to an auction with works from the book (and others) to benefit our new International HIV/AIDS Awareness Education Center (IHAEC).

You can see all the works offered at the auction in this short video:

The book: “DAA: The first Decade!” published by Ludion

An overview of the defining moments in the different campaigns and initiatives that took place during the first 10 years of Designers against AIDS and other HIV/AIDS projects instigated by Ninette Murk.. Next to a collection of beautiful pictures, DAA and Beauty without Irony founder Ninette talks about how she got inspired and motivated to take on this intense, necessary and life saving challenge.

Professor Dr. Peter Piot – former chairman of UNAIDS- , H&M’s creative advisor Margareta van den Bosch and philosopher-writer Alain de Botton also contribute to this book.

The auction: Artists against AIDS

Over the years DAA was lucky enough to work together with many talented artists: photographers, designers, musicians, contemporary and graphic artists,.. In order to support our new International HIV/AIDS Awareness Center (IHAEC) many works donated by these artists will be sold during the auction.
The collection includes work of artists like Daniel Jackson, Karim Rashid, Gianluca Tamorri, Tom Tosseyn, Bill & Tom Kaulitz (Tokio Hotel), Wouter Van Vaerenbergh, Daniel Riera and many more.

It’s possible to visit the exposition with these works at the auction house already and the catalogue will be online from October 25.

The location: Campo & Campo
