Life is not a Beach
Exhibition Opening

Many guests attended the vernissage of the exhibition LIFE IS NOT A BEACH. In her opening speech, Dr. Graeve Ingelmann, head of the Sammlung für Fotografie und Neue Medien (collection of photography and new media) at Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich, presented Matthieu Gafsou’s photographic project within a photo-historical context and thus introduced visitors to the exhibition subject. Another highlight was the presence of many of the artists whose works are on view. Shigenobu Fujishiro, Katharina Kleinfeld, Antoine Leperlier, Philip Baldwin, and Monica Guggisberg celebrated together with the other guests.
