At this year’s exhibition at Handwerksform Hannover (exhibition venue of the Chamber of Crafts), Joachim Giesel, winner of the 1985 State Prize, was invited to exhibit some of his best works. From 18.11.2023 to 10.12.2023, six special photographs can be seen and purchased at the “Christmas Edition”.
The major exhibition of Joachim Giesel’s life’s work opens on 4 July 2024 at the Mädler Art Forum in Leipzig. The exhibition is curated by Rickie Lynne Giesel and Prof Martin Schieder together with 16 students from Leipzig University. A catalogue will be published to accompany the exhibition.
The Rudolf Augstein Foundation is supporting our exhibition and publication project! In 1990, Joachim Giesel photographed the Spiegel founder and native Hanoverian Rudolf Augstein (1923-2002) for his photo book “Photo-Portraits from Hanover”. Of course, this portrait will be part of our exhibition!
In the winter term 2023/2024 and summer term 2024, a research project on Joachim Giesel’s life’s work will take place at the Institute of Art History at the University of Leipzig. The results of the project will lead to an exhibition and a publication.
