Until 16 September 2018, the Moritzburg Art Museum in Halle is showing the exhibition Into the Open. Art Photograph in Eastern Germany since 1990.
Towards the end of the third decade after German reunification, this exhibition enquires about the continuities and new beginnings in art photography in the area that was formerly the GDR. It also asks how photographers from the old federal states have engaged artistically with the East of Germany and which themes drive the new artist generation.
By means of selected positions Into the Open thus links up with the questions and positions already presented in the exhibition Geschlossene Gesellschaft. Künstlerische Fotografie in der DDR 1994 – 1989 (The Shuttered Society. Art Photography in the GDR 1949–1989, Berlinische Galerie, 2012/13), albeit without seeing itself as a direct continuation of that show.
