This event has ended.

This project shows the sense of quality and excellence possessed by German companies and cultural institutions and illustrates the creativity and innovation imbued in them. The project presents top German companies and institutions including A. Lange & Söhne, Gaggenau, Leica, Meissen, Montblanc, Porsche, Sennheiser, Berliner Philharmoniker, Nationalgalerie Berlin, the Semperoper, and more represented by 70 photographs in a wide range of motifs.

On display will be craftsmanship & technology and hospitality & culture at the highest level, along with the people who embody this sense of quality. Even though the personalities, products and processes may appear to be extremely different there is a common passion for perfection, artistic daring, and pleasure in the culminating work.

Publisher Gerhard Steidl created the exhibition design with an emphasis on artistry. Steidl says “The photographs are by German photographer Jim Rakete, who succeeds in capturing opposite poles such as avant-garde and tradition, romanticism and progress, allowing one to personally experience these fields of creative tension. This creates new access points and innovative insights.”
