time: 05.06.2009. - 21.06.2009.
place: Hamburg, Germany
A photo exhibition of members of the Foto Klub Zagreb, one of the oldest photo clubs in Europe, has been opened at the townhall Altona in Hamburg as part of the altonale11 cultural event, the Foto Klub Zagreb said on Tuesday.

Since 1999 every year in June the Hamburg district of Altona celebrates 14 days of culture and festivities. Half a million people take part. The altonale event today is the third largest annual event of Hamburg and one of the largest street fests in Germany. For 14 days it draws interested people of the region to literature, art, theatre and music performances with primarily local focus. It finishes with a three day street festival where more than 150 local groups, initiatives and social institutions present themselves. The street fest culminates in Hamburg’s International Street Art Festival: the altonale spassparade (Altona Fun Parade) on the last Sunday. The harmonious mix of commercial and cultural offers, its dazzling array and intercultural, open atmosphere has formed the very special character of the altonale event.
