Photographs become pictures

Share:

From April 27 to August 13, 2017, the Städel Museum in Frankfurt/Main is dedicating a comprehensive exhibition to the Becher Class. Based on around 200 photographs by the internationally renowned or still to be rediscovered artists Volker Döhne, Andreas Gursky, Candida Höfer, Axel Hütte, Tata Ronkholz, Thomas Ruff, Jörg Sasse, Thomas Struth and Petra Wunderlich, the exhibition explores the influence that Bernd and Hilla Becher may have had on their students at the Düsseldorf Art Academy.

Does such a thing as a Becher School actually exist, or are we ‘only’ dealing with a group of very successful photographers, who just happen to have studied at the ‘right place’ during a particularly favourable moment in time?  

The exhibition Fotografien werden Bilder. Die Becher-Klasse (Photographs become pictures. The Becher Class) takes the artist couple’s oeuvre as a starting point, to underline the radical change that took place in the way that photography was dealt with, and which manifested as of the eighties but particularly during the nineties in the work of the Becher students. On display are chief works in large-format, as well as central early works by Germany’s most influential generation of photographers.
