From May 4th, 2021, a 15 meter long photographic work by the Brazilian artist Caio Reisewitz can be admired in the middle of the city at the small market hall. At night, the work is illuminated from behind, similar to a slide.

We have our own problems in our microcosm and tend to ignore the issues that are really important and that are at stake globally. The Brazilian rainforest loses an area the size of three football fields every minute. We are proud that we were able to provide the Brazilian artist Caio Reisewitz with our shop window in downtown Frankfurt to give this important message a platform.

Beginning with digital images printed on adhesive backed paper, he hand cuts and pastes them directly on the wall, creating the composition in a freestyle manner.
