A life changing journey in pictures

Freitag, 16. November 2018



More than 20 years ago, Ken Schluchtmann undertook a journey that would change his life forever. What started off as an ordinary vacation evolved into an immersive experience, stepping inside an entirely different world featuring a visual intensity impossible to be captured in words.

Several years later – by then Schluchtmann had quit his law studies and was graduating from Lette-Verein Berlin as a photo designer – he specialized in architectural and landscape photography and began to develop the unique visual language that characterizes his iconic style. 

Since then, Ken Schluchtmann has returned to Norway more than 15 times and is now sharing the results of his trips during the past eight years. His exhibition „Architecture and Landscape in Norway“ at the Felleshus of the Nordic Embassies in Berlin is an examination of the country, its impressive landscapes and its contemporary architecture.

11. Berliner Hoffest von Klaus Wowereit

Donnerstag, 30. Juni 2011


The Sage Hospital e.V. again was invited by his protector the major of Berlin, Klaus Wowereit to present the project at the annual „Hoffest“ in the city hall.

This year we showed an exhibition in cooperation with Marco Riedel from Room Division.

Together with the children of Warang we worked out some pictures with the theme „it’s in your hands“ at our last trip to Senegal. They painted their thoughts about the relationship to the hospital. This was initiated to give them a feeling of partnership and responsibility for each other.

The result were 18 small pieces of art which we sold to interested guests. The profit will proceed directly to the project again.

There are still some pictures left. If you are interested please contact Marco at marco@roomdivision.com

Eingedeckt! The work, the show, the party

Donnerstag, 20. Mai 2010


It was a successful night for Sage Hospital.

After 2 nights of building 180 people listened to the literary performance „Der ewige Brunnen“ of Ben Becker and had a delicious meal. After the dessert the famous Band The BossHoss started the party with an unplugged live concert followed by the house dj Divinity. The ones who stayed longer than the rest had the chance to be part of a spontanous privat concert of Ben Becker and his old friend Yoyo Röhm.

In the end we got about 15.000 euros for the Sage Hospital. This money will help us to pay the costs until the end of the year and to bring necessary stuff to Senegal in October.

Many thanks to all guests, sponsors and the people who helped us running this project.
