We are pleased to invite you to the opening of the exhibition René Burri, Explosions of Sight on Tuesday, January 28, 2020!

Numerous unpublished documents – contact sheets, models for books, notebooks, collages, watercolours and sketches – shed light on the life and work of a member of Magnum Photos and one of the most influential photojournalists of our time, presenting all the explosions on his views of the world.
