Old makes room for new
The Züblin multi-story car park in the center of Stuttgart is not just a multi-story car park. In addition to providing space for motor vehicles, it also offers space for art posters from the "Fumes and Perfumes" exhibition series. In preparation for the new exhibition, Kärcher supported the artists in removing the old posters.
In previous years, it took three days of laborious manual work for four people with spatulas and nail rollers . Now it could be done in less than a day by two people, thanks to Kärcher's equipment and expertise. It was important to ensure that only the posters were removed, not the paint on the wall underneath. The two cold water high-pressure cleaners HD 9/23 G (petrol driven) and HD 6/16 (electric) were used.
The exhibition series
"Fumes and Perfumes" is being hosted for the fifth time this year. The opening takes place on July 13th at 8.00 p.m. in the Züblin car park in Stuttgart. The new art posters will be on display there until June 2019. Since 2014, photographers and artist colleagues Frank Bayh & Steff Rosenberger-Ochs, Peter Franck, Monica Menez and Yves Noir have been organizing this annual exhibition, which unites international photographers under one roof.
