Munich. On October 27, New Zealand initiators Blackwell & Ruth and the German publisher of the book “200 Women who will change the way you see the world”, Dr Elisabeth Sandmann, together with the project’s exclusive partner BMW Group, will celebrate the German premiere of the eponymous exhibition at Alte Bayerische Staatsbank in Munich. From October 28 to November 21, the venue will be home to “200 Women who will change the way you see the world” before it will move on to be on display at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) from November 26 to December 14, 2018.


Over the course of the project “200 Women who will change the way you see the world”, various women were asked five identical questions irrespective of their nationality, background, religion, celebrity status or education, and their answers get under one’s skin. What really matters to you? What brings you happiness? What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery? What would you change if you could? Which single word do you most identify with? 

The photographs taken exclusively for the book “200 Women who will change the way you see the world” will now be on display in Germany for the very first time. After having been interviewed for the book, each of the 200 women hailing from all over the world sat to be photographed by award-winning photographer


Kieran E. Scott. With their inimitable style his portraits offer a glimpse into the personal stories of these women. Each portrait was taken in front of a plain sheet of linen.

With the support of BMW Group, the exhibition illustrates a large variety of exceptional narratives and life stories via film and photographic portraits inviting its visitors to think about diversity, equal opportunities, equal rights and courage.


Harald Krüger, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW Group, is convinced that equal opportunities must become the norm as they play a vital role in the development of our societies: “It is a moral imperative to live and promote equal opportunities. There is a direct correlation between societal wealth and equal opportunities for women on the labour market.”


Dr Elisabeth Sandmann, publishing house Elisabeth Sandmann Verlag said, “It has always been my mission to make women more visible. The 200 women we read about here, whose voices we hear and whose faces we see, humble us. These women show us that courage and passionate commitment really do bring about change in the world. To that effect, this project is also about hope, future prospects and change.”

As part of the vernissage, held on October 27 at 6 PM at Alte Bayerische Staatsbank, the project’s initiator Geoff Blackwell (Blackwell&Ruth) and

Dr Elisabeth Sandmann (publishing house Elisabeth Sandmann Verlag) will discuss to what extend “200 Women who will change the way you see the world” can indeed affect how we look at the world. In addition, the project’s co-initiator Ruth Hobday (Blackwell&Ruth) will talk with TV host and producer


Bettina Böttinger and some of the book’s protagonists including photojournalist Julia Leeb, Sahm Venter, senior researcher at Nelson Mandela Foundation and Diane Wright Foley, head of James W. Foley Legacy Foundation. New Zealand singer Kimbra, another participant of the project, will provide the musical entertainment for the opening. Many of the international participants of “200 Women who will change the way you see the world” will also attend the project’s vernissage.
