CHE GUEVARA. The Icon of a Generation
Opening, Monday, May 26th 2008

On May 26th 2008 the exhibition CHE GUEVARA. The Icon of a generation opened with Che´s son, Camilo Guevara, present.

A lot more than 600 guests came to the opening and were captivated by the extraordinary exhibition. We are also very happy about the immense media coverage of the exhibition. Peter Coeln gave the Laudation and the opening speech was held by Dr. Alfred Weidinger and René Burri. Dr. Kaufmann, owner of the Leica Camera AG, handed a Leica M8 Chrom - which was manufactured specifically because of Che´s 80th birthday - to Camilo Guevarain.
