Thanks to those who joined us at UNPAINTED lab 3.0 in Munich in 2016.  The support of the City of Munich, inclusive the patronage by Dr. Ludwig Spaenle (Minister of Cultural Affairs of the State of Bavaria) and Josef Schmid (Vice Mayor of the City of Munich) as well as the selection of exhibiting artists made this year’s edition a resounding success.

Nearly 4,000 guests attended the Kesselhalle of MMA, near the Museum District of Munich.
