Pop Attitudes! Axl Klein – Zorn (Rage)

Begin: 20.03.2014 hour End: 15.06.2014 All day

…is the title of Saarbrucken photographer Axl Klein's exhibition on the subject of rage. Axl Klein has mediated, through his camera, this feeling alongside love and fear, which is one of the most elemental emotions of human existence. In 55 portraits, well-known personalities such as Wolfang Niedecken, Guildo Horn and Markus Lanz come to expression in quite differing ways. How does rage make its presence felt in the faces of these celebrities? Such intimate insights are not normally permitted or even possible in public life. The exhibition is under the auspices of Amnesty International.
