On the occasion of the exhibition MADE REALITIES, the Draiflessen Collection invites you to a talk between the writer George Pavlopoulos and the arts and culture scholar Pia Kuik. They will speak about the intertwining of reality and fiction in literature and photography. Is it possible to find common ground between these media, which at first glance seem very different?
