Ambrotypes at Samsa G. Tuchwaren

Located in the western outskirts of Munich, Hamid Bagherzadeh and Liu Zheng have reticently transformed part of a former factory complex into an exceptional gallery space, named Samsa G. Tuchwaren, inspired by Kafka’s „The Metamorphosis“. While the interior has mostly been left in its distinctive shape of the industrial early 20th century, the facility yet contains a powerful, contemporary quality which adds to its timeless and brutal aesthetic. Masterly blended into this uncompromising environment, Samsa G. Tuchwaren revealed itself to a public audience with their inaugural exhibition „Process! Episode One: Ambrotypes“, a collaboration between STEFAN MILEV (Stuttgart), STEFAN SAPPERT (Wien) and NINI GOLLONG (Paris).
