Das Verborgene Museum (The Hidden Museum) presents a showcase of 60 monochrome images by Marianne Strobl. The exhibition, which is open from September 19, 2019 to March 8, 2020, marks the first time the Viennese photographer’s work is presented in Berlin.
Marianne Strobl (1865–1917) is known as the first woman to pursue industrial photography in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Unlike most of her female colleagues, she did not wish to make a living working in a portrait studio. Instead, she took her camera to major construction sites and industrial facilities in and around Vienna – a practice which required her to handle complex photographic equipment in difficult terrain.
In the years from 1894 to 1917, Strobl created a body of work which recently became one of the most sensational rediscoveries in the field of early industrial photography. In collaboration with Vienna’s Photoinstitut Bonartes, Das Verborgene Museum presents a compilation of around 60 black and white photographs from various Austrian collections, in order to introduce this remarkable turn-of-the-century pioneer to audiences outside of Vienna.
