Magnificent cinemas in intensive colours and decorated with overflowing ornaments - surely only to be found in India. Sabine Haubitz and Stefanie Zoche have photographed these magical movie palaces and convey a sense of the spell they can still cast upon us. Just as visionary, surprising and unconventional are the church buildings that the couple discovered and photographed on their journeys. The architecture of both cinemas and churches offers their visitors places of diverse enlightenment beyond the everyday world.

This is the first presentation in Germany. The corresponding publication has just been awarded the Architectural Photo-Book Prize of the DAM (German Architectural Museum).
