The five-star establishment on Opernplatz becomes the exhibition venue for artist Helena Heilig's photo project. During the Germany-wide lockdown, Heilig photographed restaurateurs in their abandoned workplaces, including Marc-Oliver Herbert, Executive Chef of Restaurant Schönemann
About a year and a half ago, in March 2020, in the first Germany-wide lockdown, Munich-based photographer Helena Heilig and journalist Susanne Fiedler launched their exhibition project "Wirte im Lockdown" ("Landlords in Lockdown"). Initially limited to Munich, the two initiators soon began photographing innkeepers in their orphaned restaurants throughout Germany, thus capturing the exceptional situation of the restaurateurs. The photographs impressively show what it looks like when an entire industry has to put on the brakes.
