Mindscape - Christof Klute is the twenty-second exhibition organized by the Rolla Foundation. On this occasion, the Foundation is presenting twenty-nine works by the German photographer from the private collection of Philip and Rosella Rolla, focusing on places of reflection and ideas. These are themes close to Klute, who studied philosophy, theology, and literature before turning to photography.

The exhibition is held in contemporary with Revisited - Christof Klute at CONSARC/GALLERIA .

Christof Klute (Münster, 1966) after studying Theology at the University of Münster (1986-88) and Philosophy at the University of Cologne (1990-1995), Christof Klute studied Photography with Bernd Becher and Thomas Ruff at the Academy of Fine Arts in Düsseldorf (1995-2002). He graduated as a master’s student with Thomas Ruff.
