Modern photography is intimately connected to urban culture. In the 1920s, photographers drew inspiration from the urban environment to make experimental compositions and create the ‘new vision’ of the Neues Sehen movement. Their approach is today considered emblematic of avant-garde photography. At the same time, however, many photographers directed their gaze towards the social fabric of the city. Adopting the role of flaneurs and street photographers, they documented everyday life and the sheer dynamism of the city’s countless inhabitants. These views show the city as a collective living space, while creating a multi-layered portrayal of people and their living conditions in urban space.
The exhibition shows photographs from the 1920s to the 1940s by Aenne Biermann, Florence Henri, Germaine Krull, Man Ray, Albert Renger-Patzsch, and Friedrich Seidenstücker from the collection of the Ann and Jürgen Wilde Foundation.
