it was great seeing you yesterday, and I hope you enjoyed the little ‘pop-up’- exhibition. While I was giving the presentation, I actually noticed some mistakes that I had made in the text. I hope I found them all now. Below, you find the corrected version.
As this talk was different from the usual format, I also include some photos; some of those who couldn’t attend last night were curious about what would be on show. Apologies for the bad quality of the images; considering that I work at the School of Art, I should’ve borrowed a proper camera rather than make do with my inadequate mobile phone….
The next talk will be on the 7th of November and in connection with one of the forthcoming exhibitions in our galleries. I’ll publish more information closer to the time in the usual places.
I always hesitate to take personal data of people, but if you would like to receive emails about future ‘German Talks’ (and ‘French Talks’, if you like), you’re very welcome to email me your email address on firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll keep you updated.
Best wishes, und bis bald,
