The Espace Louis Vuitton München is pleased to present the exhibit 'Exile' from Indian artist and filmmaker Amar Kanwar, on display from April 24th to September 15th, 2019.
The Espace Louis Vuitton München, within the framework of the Fondation Louis Vuitton "Hors-les-murs" program, invites you to experience two films by Amar Kanwar, Henningsvaer (2006) and A Love Story (2010), alongside a recent installation selected by the artist himself, Letter 5 (2017). Amar Kanwar is an artist and filmmaker who lives and works in New Delhi. His oeuvre, deeply marked by the history of his country, shows multiple influences ranging from 15th and 16th-century Indian poetry to the cinema of Russian director Andrei Tarkovski. Kanwar's works encourage reflection and examine nationalism, politics, violence, and social performance through video and sound installations. Kanwar invites the viewer on a potent personal experience and aspires to incite new generations of artists to rethink the social consequences of their work.
Like many of his films, Henningsvaer (2006) is a complex contemporary narrative that connects intimate personal spheres of existence to larger social-political processes – in this case a cinematic interpretation of separation and exile. Mixing historical footage, personal testimony and lyrical cinematography, Kanwar creates a multi-layered film installation connecting intimate personal histories with the wider politics of power and justice. A Love Story (2010), a much shorter film, is a short poetic documentary set on the fringe of an expanding Indian city, addressing conditions of conflict through the combination of poetic sensibility and political consciousness.

Louis Vuitton's iconic Monogram print has been magnified to take on a fresh, fun dimension in a new collection now exclusively available online.
The Monogram like you've never seen it before. Dating from 1896 when Georges Vuitton created the pattern of interlocking LV's and florals, the iconic motif has become an instantly recognizable symbol and endless source of inspiration for the Maison. The latest reinterpretation magnifies the print to new proportions with the Monogram Giant capsule collection. On a selection of familiar leather goods such as the Speedy bag or the Zippy wallet, to versatile accessories like the LV Iconic Reversible belt or XL Shawl, the new Monogram Giant adds a fashion-forward touch to any silhouette.
