Riverscapes

Share:

Dusseldorf’s Kunstarchiv Kaiserswerth museum presents the exhibition ‘Flusslandschaften’, open from October 3, 2020 to March 28, 2021. The presentation was organised by the city’s Cultural Department in collaboration with Studio Bernd & Hilla Becher and the Photography Collection / SK Cultural Foundation in Cologne.

The group exhibition comprises monochrome and colour works by key Dusseldorf artists Bernd & Hilla Becher, Laurenz Berges, Andreas Gursky, Axel Hütte, Bernard Langerock, August Sander, and Josef Schulz.  The selected images are centred around depictions of riverscapes – traditionally a popular theme in classic paintings. Modern-day river landscapes are often found within an urban or industrial context. Nevertheless, the displayed scenes are imbued with a majestic power that is, perhaps, borne out of the history inherent in landscape depictions of this kind.

In part, the exhibition was inspired by the role of Kaiserswerth as a creative location for the legendary artist couple Bernd and Hilla Becher.
