Café Lehmitz – The PhotobookMuseum Event bar  31 May – 3 June 2018Dock4

Café Lehmitz – Event Bar

The guests of Café Lehmitz seem to be having a fabulous time. Nonetheless, it is apparent at first glance that the people at this pub on the Hamburg Reeperbahn are those who are not welcome at other locations. Anders Petersen, however, partied with these drinkers, petty crooks, whores, with the job- and homeless: With the help of his photographs he created the portrait of a crude world in which hope dies last. The photobook of the Swedish photographer, whose cover photo Tom Waits used for his LP Rain Dogs, counts as one of the classics of milieu-photography.
The Café Lehmitz as Anders Petersen saw it, does not exist anymore. For one of the PhotoBoookMuseums PhotoBookStudies it has celebrated a revival in the form of a walk-in, full-size reconstruction for The PhotoBookMuseum Carlswerk Edition in 2014.
For the 10th anniversary of the Kassel Fotobookfestival it will take place at Kulturhaus Dock 4 – the evening location of the festival 2018:

Thursday 31 May from 7pm
Friday 1 June from 6pm
Saturday 2 June from 6pm – DJ Tobby Lolli (PBM Residence)
