March 22 to 24 : Tips for the weekend in Bonn and the region

A festival with international music or Nicki Minaj? A night with 100 books or a magic show of young talents? Or would you rather just laugh for no reason? The choice for the coming weekend is big. We have put together some tips for Bonn and the region.

Live cooking show for gourmets

In the future, Johann Lafer will voluntarily do without the Michelin stars and would prefer to communicate kitchen tips on a small scale instead. At "Germany's first gourmet show", 200 guests will not only be able to look over the shoulders of the boss himself and his team - they will even be able to sample the food. Not really comparable, but all the more exclusive, is the two-day premiere in the Steigenberger Grandhotel on the Petersberg.

When: Friday, March 22, and Sunday, March 23, each from 7 pm

Sharon Ventura: Femininity In Pop

Sharon Ventura's exhibition "Femininity In Pop" with more than 40 paintings focuses on the female psyche, sensuality and sexuality. The exhibition runs from Sunday 24 March to Sunday 12 May. It will open with a reception and an introduction by the art historian Uschi Baetz on Sunday 24 March at 1 pm.

One of the four rooms of the exhibition is dedicated to the 69 paintings of the "V" series. It is the largest exhibition of this project so far. Ventura's commitment follows artistic principles to show positive sexual works in a respectful and aesthetic way. She sees her paintings in their design, composition and colour as examples of experiences she wants to share.

Ventura, born in Canada, has European parents and has lived in Germany since 2009. She has studied art in Toronto, Canada, Dallas, Texas and Paris. Currently she lives and works in Bonn.
