I am very much looking forward to seeing you there. The project in the foyer of the museum invites the visitors to sit down in a discussion studio and get into a conversation with each other.

Martin Krenn´s digital black and white photo prints in the second room are titled „Demonstrate!“ and were taken 2000-2001.
The photo text series has not lost its topicality, since it conveys both analyses of the political situation as well as content for social reorientation after the intended fall of the federal government.
