Vernissage: PEOPLE JOY PICTURES solemnly opened – further dates in 2023

Kerstin und Kathrin

The first photo exhibition of Menschenfreude e.V. was opened at the weekend in the context of a large vernissage. There were about 70 pictures on display, taken by Kerstin Schley, Kathrin Anderseck and Jürgen Perteck, which were taken during the worldwide missions of our non-profit organization. The exhibits were framed by selected artifacts from the respective countries, accompanying texts, and artistic installations. In January 2023, the exhibition will move on - initially to Alfter City Hall. Other locations are planned.
Menschenfreude Ausstellung Vernissag

Around 100 visitors in the village hall Alfter

On Saturday evening MENSCHEN FREUDE BILDER was shown for the first time in the Dorfgemeinschaftshaus in Alfter-Gielsdorf. On this day and the following one, our team welcomed around 100 guests who were very moved by the presented photographs and accompanying texts, some of which were very personal and emotional.

We would like to thank you very much for the interest, the many conversations and the great response! We have compiled the most beautiful impressions of the festive opening here:
