Jane B. in the city with K.

englisch deutsch

Jane Birkin became internationally famous with the cult film Blow-Up. And notorious because of her liaison with Serge Gainsbourg. Together they recorded the song "Je t’aime ... moi non plus", which was a global hit and an incredible scandal. The beauty and the enfant terrible, they were “it couple” of their era. Reinforcing her cult status, Hermès named a handbag after her, which also achieved cult status: the Birkin bag.
Jane Birkin has kept a diary since she was a schoolgirl. All of the entries are written to her stuffed animal, a small monkey. At her only public reading, Jane B. presents Munkey Diaries here in Cologne. Host: Shelly Kupferberg; German text: Nina Kunzendorf
