Exhibition of the initiative »Mein Erbe tut Gutes. Das Prinzip Apfelbaum« with photographs by the cologne-based artist Bettina Flitner.
„What remains when I am no longer there?“ is a question that has mankind always been dealing with. To talk about it in public still seems to be a taboo. For „The Apple Tree Principle" 11 famous figures confront this question with great openness. Amongst others Egon Bahr, Wim Wenders, Friede Springer and Anne-Sophie Mutter have contributed very private insights and thoughts to this photo essay by Bettina Flitner.
The exhibition "Das Prinzip Apfelbaum. 11 Persönlichkeiten zur Frage ›Was bleibt?‹" presents large-size photographs, short films and excerpts, which will be explained via the audio guide.
The initiative »Mein Erbe tut Gutes. Das Prinzip Apfelbaum«, a union of non-profit organisations and foundations, was established
