Play! Give the world a new look

An exhibition of photographs taken in Kronberg by Andreas Malkmus and Patricia Truchsess
Details >

A multi-level venture with sounds, creative images and different perspectives

Like musicians, photographers also play with the wide world of possibilities: they try things out, take up a position – and then present us with a reality that we can observe, listen to and admire. In their photos, Andreas Malkmus and Patricia Truchsess present the two realities that they perceive at Kronberg Academy: questioning and exploration in the tuition rooms – communication and a statement of views on stage. For young musicians the call is the same in both settings: “Play!”
