Museum Folkwang dedicates a major retrospective to the German photographer’s work: ‘Timm Rautert and the Lives of Photography’ continues until May 16, 2021.
The Folkwang Museum in Essen, Germany, presents a major exhibition of works by one of the city’s most renowned photographers: ‘Timm Rautert and the Lives of Photography’ encompasses five decades of the artist’s oeuvre. The selection spans from his early experiments as a student of Otto Steinert, to famous portrait series such as ‘Germans in Uniform’ and ‘A Life of One’s Own’, all the way to his collages and the ‘L ́Ultimo Programma’ installation of 2015. With more than 400 exhibits, the showcase illustrates the remarkable versatility of Rautert’s approaches and themes, while simultaneously retracing the medium’s history and evolution. Steidl Publishing has released a comprehensive catalogue to accompany the exhibition.
Timm Rautert (b. 1941) ranks among the most remarkable photographers of our time. For decades, he has played a major role in shaping important visual movements – be it as a studio photographer for galleries, as a photojournalist, a documentarist of changing work environments, or as a university lecturer guiding future generations.
Tickets for the exhibition must be pre-booked online at https://museum-folkwang.ticketfritz.de/ and are tied to a specific time window.
