As part of the “the one thing” project, more than 80 photo portraits have been taken all over the world. The exhibition shows 30 portraits of people and their most important objects. The starting point of the project is a simple question: What is “the one thing” you don’t want to live without? The subjects portrayed on essential questions about pondering an object that they do not want to do without: What do I really need? What is important to me in life?
Behind them are the worlds of “conscious consumption”, “minimalism” and “sustainability”. The variety of objects is very impressive, the stories behind them are unique and interesting. The answers to the question about your favorite item are fascinating, surprising and often touching.
The opening exhibition took place in February and March 2020 in the New Town Hall in Hanover. Now it should travel nationally and internationally in the future.

Interested institutions can rent the exhibition.
