With over 50 photographs, lyrics and a music video installation, this exhibition on view in Istanbul presents a trip through the life of Munich based photographer and musician Alexa von Arnim (b.1991). Born the daughter of an American mother and French father, her work is the connection between the various experiences and impressions of her life between Paris and Munich.

Seven self-portraits comprise the core of the exhibition, surrounded by a selection of Instant-Camera prints which give a context to the self portraits, that tell their own story, the whole giving a glimpse of the life of the artist.

The emotional striptease of the artist becomes the panorama of a generation. Snapshots come together to tell a story, which is rooted in the concepts of freedom, friendship and the challenges of a global youth.
