To mark the 175th anniversary of the invention of photography, Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg is devoting an extensive exhibition to photography of the 1920s and 1930s. Addressing approaches between the New Objectivity movement and surrealist tendencies, Real Surreal consists of a special selection of around 150 masterpieces from the unique Siegert Collection in Munich. Never before has such an extensive part of the collection been exhibited.
The selection ranges from precise records of reality in portrait and industrial photography, to the Bauhaus approach of depicting specific portions or innovative perspectives of an image, as well as photo-montages, technical experiments (i.e. photogram and solarisation) and staged scenes.
The Siegert Collection focuses primarily on German photography, Parisian Surrealism and the Prague scene.
