Join us for a scenic reading at the opening of the exhibition "Wir sind Rincklake. Portrait Painting in the Selfie Age". The exhibition is about the craft of professional portrait painting, which has been replaced by today's selfie culture, as well as about the depicted persons themselves, who are made to speak through multimedia. In addition, the life and technique of the well-known portrait painter Rincklake will be illuminated. The exhibition is open to the public from 19 June to 11 September 2022.
