HURTS ONCE AND LASTS A LIFETIME

HURTS ONCE AND LASTS A LIFETIME.
Let’s talk about Tattoo.

AN EVENING WITH THE TATTOO ARTISTS 
RICARDA WISTUBA AND 
HEIKO GANTENBERG

Fri, 02/08/24, 6 pm

Tattoos have a long tradition and are now part of the mainstream. They are often real, small works of art that are sometimes visible, sometimes hidden on the surface of the body. Our guests are tattoo artist Ricarda Wistuba, who also works as a taxidermist at the Museum König in Bonn, and tattoo artist Heiko Gantenberg. He founded the association Tätowierkunst e.V. in 2018, traveled the world on the trail of tattoos by motorcycle and has organized exhibitions on the subject of tattoo art himself. Dr. Martina Padberg and Monika Bartholomé talk to these exciting guests about the motifs and messages of "body drawing" and its relationship to art.

Admission: 10 euro
