The Perfect World Foundation
is a Swedish based non-profit independent organization established in 2010 to raise awareness, funding, and to take action together with animal and nature conservation projects around the world.

During 2014 The Perfect World Foundation will specifically target the Wildlife trade under the name “Save The Rhino 2014", The Rhino is the ambassador for Elephants, Lions, Tigers etc. with extra focus on the ongoing poaching, raising awareness and funds. The whole world is fighting to save the last remaining Rhinos and Elephants. If poaching continues at current levels there will be no wild Rhinos or Elephants left in 5-7 years’ time.

In 2007, in South Africa, 13 Rhinos were killed because of their horns. In 2013 this figure had climbed to 1004 (in South Africa only). The 16th of January this year we got the following very clear message: “Hell has arrived in Kruger”. The park had been attacked simultaneously from five different directions and the anti-poaching guards did not stand a chance to stop the illegal massacre. At the end of the week, the stock, that was already under severe pressure, had been reduced by 63 Rhinos. This forms part of the background as to why The Perfect World Foundation has decided to dedicate 2014 to increase the level of awareness and to raise funds to stop the illegal poaching and Wildlife Trade. The Rhino has been chosen as the ambassador for all endangered animals, such as: elephants, lions, tigers, etc. This is being done through the project “Save the Rhino 2014”. We will never leave the Rhino behind! We will continue to raise awareness and funding for as long as it is necessary trough The Perfect World Foundation!

The Perfect World Foundation will raise money for rhino and elephant conservation through this ART AUCTION that online:

Final bidding will take place during the Conservation Ball in September 2014. Artists like Ernst Billgren, Jacob Felländer, Nick Brandt, and Stefanie Schneider have donated works and we are very grateful to these fantastic people.

The 18th of September 2014 at The Hotel Post, Gothenburg, Sweden, there will be a special fundraising dinner, “The Conservation Gala Dinner”, ending the special year dedicated to the rhino and his friends. The Gala Dinner will also be the starting point for the year of the shark, “Save The Shark 2015″.

On stage: Martin Stenmarck, Marie Picasso, Mia Skäringer, Stefan Andersson, Triple & Touch and more! On the red carpet we are looking forward to find Royalities, Politicians, Ambassadors and our own Rhino Ambassadors. The gala dinner will become a memorable moment, as “the gala dinner of the decade”, and will be the place to learn more about the rhino, meet other conscious people, celebrities and take part of the final of the art auction, in favour of the rhino and the elephants.

Nach über einem Jahr Auseinandersetzung akzeptiert LUMAS nun endlich Stefanie Schneiders Kündigung mit sofortiger Wirkung. Grund für die Trennung sind Streitigkeiten über die allzu freie Nutzung der Werke Stefanie Schneiders sowie Abrechnungs -und Vergütungsfragen, aber auch die Entwicklung von Whitewall.

Stefanie Schneider war es unmöglich, weiterhin mit LUMAS zusammen-zuarbeiten. Stefanie Schneider sagt über LUMAS: “LUMAS ist der Aldi der Kunstposter. Die Qualität des LUMAS Portfolios ist rapide gesunken.”

Der Trennung waren einige gerichtliche Auseinandersetzungen voraus-gegangen, die in der 1. Instanz alle zu Gunsten von Stefanie Schneider ausgegangen sind. So hat sich LUMAS vor dem Kölner Landgericht ver- pflichtet, das im September letzten Jahres erschienene Buch COLLECTING FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY VOL. 1, HIGHLIGHTS OF THE LUMAS PORTFOLIO vom Markt zu nehmen, da die Verwendung von Werken Stefanie Schneiders in diesem Bildband nicht von dem nun beendeten Vertrag gedeckt war.

After more than a year of struggle LUMAS finally conceded to Stefanie Schneider’s notice of immediate termination of contract. There were several reasons for the break up, as LUMAS’ broad view regarding licence rights, accounting and payment matters, but also the development of “Whitewall”. “LUMAS has become the ALDI of art posters. The downfall of LUMAS portfolio’s quality was rapidly”, says Stefanie Schneider.

Several court struggles accompanied the break up, all closed in favour of Stefanie Schneider at first instance. In one of the cases at Cologne district court (Landgericht Köln), LUMAS obligated itself to take the book COLLECTING FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY VOL. I, HIGHLIGHTS OF THE LUMAS PORTFOLIO, published in fall 2008, off the market.
