Bloch is going to Chile!

Good news: Bloch is soon back on the road (or better: boat). Next destination: CHILE.
We got invited to be part of the Festival de arte contemporaneo SACO8 in Antofagasta/Chile this Summer.
Currently Bloch is prepared by Roger Gentinetta and his son for the shipping to South America. Bloch was stored almost a year in Rawsonville outside  Cape Town with the Le Roux-Family. – Thank you all for taking good care of our Bloch!
