Illustrated Book "Luther and The Avantgarde" 

The contemporary art in the old jail in Wittenberg with the special presentations in Berlin and Kassel.

On the occasion of the 500th anniversary of Reformation 70 progressively-thinking artists took up the ideas of Martin Luther (1483-1546).

The famous artists like Julian Rosefeldt, Stephan Balkenhol, Isa Genzken or Guenther Uecker make the drawback visible and show the impressive visions of the social change.
