The Other Side of the Photo – Being a Refugee
Photographer Barbara Donaubauer has invited refugees in Munich to come and have their photo taken at a pop-up studio in the Einwand Gallery (next appointment: March 24). From March 28, the photo shoots, the refugees’ portraits and written accounts will go on public display in the Einwand Gallery. The refugees’ images and written accounts are intended to foreground their impressions of the city and their everyday life in Munich. These encounters will also provide an opportunity to reflect on other ways of thinking and what it really means to be a foreigner.
Hauskonzerte meets Münchner Stadtmuseum

About the Münchner Stadtmuseum
The scale of this museum is only really evident from the air. The extensive site comprises two spacious interior courtyards that are framed by four unusually diverse buildings. The oldest of these, the historic armory built in 1500, faces St.-Jakobs-Platz. The collections annex, which was designed by Gustav Gsaenger at the end of the 1950s, extends to Rindermarkt; the medieval royal stables – which were reconstructed in 1977 – reach as far as Sebastiansplatz. Both in terms of its physical magnitude and the scope of its collections, it is Germany's largest municipal museum.
Filmmuseum – Cinema
With its special program of movie screenings, the Münchner Filmmuseum has become a popular haunt for cinema aficionados. The program, which changes on a daily basis, features comprehensive retrospectives, selected premieres, and theme-related film series including both German and international productions. All of the films are screened in their original format and language (with subtitles available in English or German). Silent movies are frequently shown with live musical accompaniment. And directors, actors and other filmmakers often guest at podium discussions following the showings. The Filmmuseum is a regular venue for festivals such as Dok.fest. the Munich Film Festival, and the International Festival of Filmschools. Located in the former Royal Stables building of the Münchner Stadtmuseum, the Filmmuseum offers top sound and (digital) film technology, seating for 165, and a silver screen that is also suitable for 3D films.
