Summer 2022 Munich celebrates 50 years post Olympics´72, that changed the city in the most profound way. The cultural department asked me to start following the current life in some relevant historic sites.

Die Irrfahrten des Jonathan Meese /
Catalog for Pinakothek der Moderne

Curators Swantje Grundler and Bernhard Schwenk asked me to document the whole process of setting up the comprehensive exhibition for the catalog.  Jonathan and his mom Brigitte were the charming center of all actions. In a dense 110 page photoseries i tried to represent the exhibition in all details, and keep Meeses posing routine peripheral. Browse here some paperback spreads and a few extra, unpublished portraits.
