February 17-19 Tips for the weekend in Bonn and the region
Bonn/Region · For carnival revellers, the best weekend of the year is coming up, but even carnival fans will get their money's worth at new exhibitions and workshops: Here are the tips for the weekend in Bonn and the region.
The fifth season brings all kinds of parties, music and carnival parades. Those who want to escape the carnival hustle and bustle will find refuge in art exhibitions, a workshop and the "Escape from Carnival" party.
Expect the unexpected
Man and machine, authorship and control: how do technological developments influence artistic photography? To answer this central question, the Kunstmuseum brings together artistic positions from the last decade. Augmented reality, CGI and 3D printing step alongside the usual photographic tools and create novel, unexpected visual worlds.
