Wols' Photography. Images Regained – an exhibition at the Martin Gropius Bau in Berlin, open from 15 March to 22 June 2014.
Wolfgang Schulze (1913-1951) was a German photographer, painter and graphic artist. Known under the pseudonym of Wols, he ranks among the most influential pioneers of the Art Informel movement.
This exhibition focuses on the the artist's work as a photographer, with around 740 images spanning the years from 1932 to 1939. The selection includes multiple portraits of creatives such as Max Ernst, Nicole Boubant or Roger Blin – all of which were featured in Wols' extraordinary exhibition at the Pavillon de l'Elégance in Paris during the World Expo 1937.
Also on display are some of his later photograms, in which the artist's tendencies towards Art Informel are already clearly noticable.
