Master of the 20th century – the other view

18 January - 1 February

The name of the master is enough! The iconic image is already in our minds: Diane Arbus, René Burri, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Frank, and Nan Goldin, as well as Irving Penn, August Sander, Edward Steichen, Martin Parr, Wim Wenders, and Jeff Widener – to name just a few of the photographers in the new Photobastei exhibition! All of them and many more invite you on a journey through the history of 20th century photography from 19 January.
The curatorial focus of the exhibition, however, is not precisely in the iconic images – but in rediscovering the masters with a different view using more familiar and unknown photographs.

The oldest photographs in this exhibition come from the Parisian photographer Eugène Atget, who strolled through the suburbs with his very important equipment and stopped in apparently inconspicuous places, which he turned into fascinating scenes. So too the backdrop of a simple archway with the adjacent barred window, which is both common and special.

Along the timeline, work by Martin Parr, Sarah Moon, Peter Beard, Nobuyoshi Araki and others rounds off. the ramble off.

The exhibition, curated by Michael Franke, invites you to stroll and discover – to a different view of around 140 masters of the 20th century.
