Der erste Popstar der Formel 1

03.09.2010 - 26.09.2010


Commemorating the 40th anniversary of Jochen Rindt's death WestLicht ist showing an exhibition honouring the great achievements of this Austrian sports hero, whose personality fascinated the country. As one of the most enigmatic racing drivers of his generation, he was awarded the Formula 1 world champion title in 1970 posthumously.
Jochen Rindt has triggered euphoria for racing sports and has paved the way for following generations of drivers.
This force, this charisma, this fascination will find an aesthetic echo in the upcoming show.
