In honour of this occasion, Galerie Poll is dedicating an exhibition to the painter and writer, entitled Goodbye to Berlin, with works from various periods of her creative production. The title refers to Christopher Isherwood’s book of the same name, which was very dear to the artist’s heart. To celebrate her birthday, companions from her life’s journey will read from texts written by Haffner – an engaged member of the ‘68 generation and daughter of the journalist and author Sebastian Haffner.
