The full Lothringer13 booklet box

Documenting 6 years of the program at Lothringer13 Halle Munich, 2014-2020, during a period where i was artistic director and curator, i also documented the exhibitions and events. The now published box gathers in total 16 original or re-edited/translated exhibition booklets and two new extra ones for an overview. The homepage will still be online, but its a good feeling to have this edition of printed documentation about these enriching years. 
The box is now available in a 
very small edition, email me if you are interested.
It is very affordable and has over 600 pages!

Born in Brennen
book with a beard N°2

Shot between 2001 and 2009, Born in Brennen features photographic essays shot across the globe, punctuated by conversation, fragments and correspondance with a number of contemporaries…
