Chargesheimer

Share:

The exhibition aims to explore the complexity and multifaceted artistic productions of German photographer Chargesheimer (Cologne, 1924-1971). A section of the exhibition will be dedicated to his experimental work – showcasing abstract photography, chemigrams and light graphics, as well as camera-less works created through direct manipulation of chemicals onto negative plates and photo paper. The earliest experimental works on display were produced between 1948 and 1953.

In 1949, Chargesheimer met L. Fritz Gruber, creative founder of the Photokina imaging fair, who later presented Chargesheimer's series "Köln 5 Uhr 30" at Photokina 1970. The series has been reconstructed to form a part of the exhibition.

Working as a photographer and stage-set designer, Chargesheimer pursued not only abstract, but also documentary-style photography. His formal understanding of the medium and its techniques allowed him to break many of the basic principles of photography – resulting in experimental abstractions that are among the most original works in photographic history to this day.
