My year 2013 in Photos

Over the Christams Season and New Years I was on Tenerife taking a braek after a pretty workful time end of the year. Workwise it has been a very succesful year with many exhibitions, the scholarship in Turkey and not to forget the big feature on ARTE.

Here a little timeline of some of my favourite events in 2013 – businesswise and private… and also some “thank yous” to the people, who made it special.

That was neccessary after 7 years of the same design – it needed to be cleaner and brighter. Thanks to Daniel Westerlund for the help.

I went there with some people that I got to know a few days before and by the end of the day I called them friends. We had a very nice and interessting day in Palma and I showed them all the gallery spaces. A few month later I visited them in their hometown Hamburg and they showed me their city. Nice to meet you G & R.

White Dinner Berlin in June

A big group dinner with foreigners – and after 2 hours it is all over. The date is set month in advance, but the place you just find out shortly before the event. Everyone comes in white clothes and with white tables, chairs, plates, decoration… and maybe even food. It is like arriving in heaven…
