A living legacy: This retrospective is the first solo exhibition of German-Mexican photographer Renata von Hanffstengel in Germany. Mainly active in Mexico of the 70s and 80s, she produced surprisingly diverse series about nature’s beauty, social issues, street life, culture and craft, Mexico-City’s devastating earthquake and East-Berlin, often with an eye for strong women in a macho environment.

For the first time, selected original images will be available for sale in Berlin during the exhibition.
