Blues on the road in the Amerika Haus

Munich, 07/08/2013

Between the early 1970s and 2000, German artist and photographer Axel Küstner travelled regularly to the US to explore the traditional music of the rural South, photographing jazz musicians and bluesmen and recording their work. Students at LMU’s Amerika-Institut have now put together a fascinating show for the Amerika Haus in Munich, based on material chosen from the Küstner‘s rich archive.

The exhibition opens on
