With Twelve Artistic Photographs Through the Year

2023 will be the year of the Eleven Dot Angels: Grete Wendt designed the first green-winged heavenly messengers in 1923 and thus the 100th birthday of this design classic is approaching. In this anniversary year we wanted to pay special tribute to them and show them from all sides. What was necessary to achieve this? Celestial models with green wings, a professional photographer and lots of technical equipment. The result is twelve striking images that demonstrate with a virtuoso play of light and shadow, and techniques that reveal what normally remains unseen, the journey these design classics make through the Grünhainichen workshops. And in this way they present in an imaginative and artistic way and with masterly skill what we normally take to be familiar things. Unique images and powerful graphics that celebrate the Eleven Dot Angels in a way that has never been done before await you.
