At Herr Fischer's Tisch during previous shootings in Hamburg: Finja Rosenbaum, Oliver Kaps (style-deluxe.net), Nicolette Scharpenberg (superlative-hamburg.de)

Jo Fischer's project "Herr Fischer bittet zu Tisch" is back on tour again. Starting at the heliumcowboy artspace on November 12 (doors open at 7 p.m.), Jo and his table will be travelling all over Germany and Switzerland, with stops in 15 cities along the road.

If you wish to be one of the 1000 people that over the course of time will take place at Jo's table and become part of his incredible project, make sure you don't miss out on the shooting at our gallery. 400 guests from all over Germany and from all kinds of backgrounds, scenes and professions have already been at the table.

The shooting with us will be conveniently held within his current exhibition "Character", that is still on display until November 19. 

Yes, there will be drinks at the bar. And no, don't dress up - just come as you are!

 

So, this is the stuff to pencil into your organizer: 

HERR FISCHER BITTET ZU TISCH @ the heliumcowboy artspace

November 12, 2010, starting at 7 p.m. (till late, or till exhaustion kicks in and Jo can't steady the camera anymore ...)

For a small fee, you can take a high quality printout of your photo with you that night. Proceeds will be donated to the Kindernothilfe e.V.
