Deutsche Version

What is the price for power? How is power transforming man? What motivates people to strive for and to bear a life in the limelight? Herlinde Koelbl, an internationally acknowledged photographer from Munich, examined these issues for a long time. Her long term photographic study, depicting 15 leading public figures from the fields of politics (inter alia Gerhard Schröder, Joschka Fischer, Angela Merkel), economy and the media, took more than eight years of intensive research work. She met her "models" once a year in order to analyze changes in their personality. Both her photographic sessions and the accompanying interviews reflect all the ups and downs of the characters. The result is an impressive profile of power. Herlinde Koelbl will present her photographic project and share with the visitors some of her interesting experiences in the fields of power and glory.
