Horizon Field Hamburg

deichtorhallenA couple of weeks ago I read about a new exhibition in the Deichtorhallen – one of Hamburgs many Museums – which sounded very interesting to me. Surprisingly it was also announced to be free of charge as it was an elaborately staged installation.

If you are around, go there and give it a shot, it’s definitely worth it!
