Exhibition

    • „Ich und Ich. Gesichter“ Horst Alexy, 2018
    • A piece of cultural history: Since 2009, photographer Horst Alexy has been portraying important cultural creators from the Göppingen region. Klaus Wuckelt was one of the first artists participating at the beginning of the project. Two portraits were created: One, just like everyone else sees the person portrayed, and one, how that individual sees itself in the mirror. Two images of one and the same person, looked at from two fundamentally different perspectives.
