‘Faces – The Power of the Human Visage’

Share:

The Albertina Museum in Vienna dedicates an exhibition to iconic portraits from Germany’s interwar period. Open from February 12 to May 24, 2021.

In the 1920s and 30s, photographers effected a radical change in our conventional understanding of the classic portrait. Instead of aiming to capture the subject’s personality, they viewed the human face as a malleable artistic material in its own right.

Starting from Helmar Lerski’s series ‘Metamorphosis through Light’ (1935/36), the curators show how the human face was used to express both the aesthetic concepts of the avant-garde, and the social developments of the interwar period.

The exhibition features works by Gertrud Arndt, Irene Bayer, Aenne Biermann, Erwin Blumenfeld, Andreas  Feininger, Trude Fleischmann, Lotte Jacobi, Grit Kallin-Fischer, Edmund Kesting, Helmar Lerski, László  Moholy-Nagy, Lucia Moholy, Oskar Nerlinger, Leni Riefenstahl, August Sander, Franz Xaver Setzer, Robert Siodmak, Anton Stankowski, Elfriede Stegemeyer, Edgar G. Ulmer, Umbo, and many others.
