The Galerie zone E of Essen, Germany, shows experimental works from the 80s by Gosbert Adler, Wendelin Bottländer, Volker Heinze, Wilmar Koenig and Knut Wolfgang Maron. Until 23 February, 2017.
This exhibition highlights a photography period, which shortly before the close of its historical development in the 1980s underwent a complete deconstruction and subsequent renewal with respect to its aesthetic, tradition and thematic concerns. Furthermore, the selected works illuminate the period through a re-examination of these significant representatives. Works by Gosbert Adler, Wendelin Bottländer, Volker Heinze, Wilmar Koenig and Knut Wolfgang Maron.
This occasion is also an exceptional opportunity to acquire unique works and countless artefacts of that era, including vintage prints that have been hand-printed by the artists. These works will be made available to the public via an uncommon online auction at unparalleled conditions.
With a prestigious history of awards and grants, the artists’ works are held in prominent museum collections including: Folkwang Museum, Essen; Museum Ludwig, Cologne; Staatsgalerie Stuttgart, Museum of Modern Art, New York; La Maison Européenne de la Photographie, Paris; Fotomuseum Winterthur and Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris.
