Opening Night Don't Wake Daddy #10


I'll be attending the opening night of the 10th version of the 'Don't Wake Daddy' group exhibition. Drop by for a look and a chat!

Edit: I was there but sadly I could not attend due to a sudden stomach flu. I hope that those who went to the opening night had a nice evening. (Missed it too? Here's a quick view of the exhibition from the Hamburg Journal, starting at 11:05).
