Gift card from Constant to Kim, 1997

In her parallel life she is a fanatic skydiver, currently holding three current world record titles. The 65-way Vertical Women’s World Record is her favourite because there is nothing better than a large group of high achieving women getting together in the sky to smash a world record. The next Women’s Record is scheduled for 2022. 102 Women from all over the world will come together to do a 102-way formation hodling hand while flying head down to celebrate that the 19th Amendment was ratified 102 years ago. The 19th Amendment gave women in de US the right to vote. Interested? Follow #getyourslotinhistory or #Project19.

By the way, did you know that Constant sponsored Kim’s first skydive 19 years ago.

On Constant

When Kim started working for Fondation Constant in 2011 she could not fathom that 10 years later she would still contrive new ideas and projects connected to his work on a daily basis. Back then, she thought she would help set up the foundation and after 5 years pass it on to someone else and go back to theater. But Constant, his ideas and his work reeled her in slowly but surely. The immense intelligence, diversity, originality and engagement of his work excites her still. Constant 1 0 1 is just the beginning, there are so many plans that are still waiting to be developed.
