„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.
