NEUES SEHEN. PHOTOGRAPHY OF THE 1920S AND 1930S FROM THE ANN AND JÜRGEN WILDE FOUNDATION

Pinakothek der Moderne
 ‐ 

With the radicalization of its formal language following the First World War, the medium of photography established itself as an artistic medium of expression. Extreme perspectives, narrow framing, magnifications, close-ups, and fragmentations opened up a new view of the world, which in the history of photography came to be known as ‘Neues Sehen’ or ‘New Vision’.
The exhibition shows a selection of photographs from the 1920s and 1930s by Aenne Biermann, Florence Henri, Germaine Krull, Man Ray, and Albert Renger-Patzsch, taken from the collection of the Ann and Jürgen Wilde Foundation.
