On the occasion of its 30 year anniversary, the Museum für Photographie in Braunschweig is presenting an exhibition of West German “Autorenfotografie” from the eighties.
The exhibition Schöne Neue BRD? Autorenfotografie der 1980er Jahre offers a glimpse into the works of ten important photographers from the seventies and eighties, in the field of what is known as “Autorenfotografie”. The events of that era are placed in relationship to the founding of the museum as a non-profit association in 1984, making it one of many relevant initiatives leading to the establishment and institutionalisation of photography.
The works on display include pieces by Aginmar, Wilfried Bauer, André Gelpke, Joachim Giesel, Uwe J. Haack, Roland Kopp, Hans-Martin Küsters, Angela Neuke, Gabriele and Helmut Nothhelfer, and Michael Schmidt.
In addition, there will be a symposium in connection with the exhibition that will take place in Braunschweig on April 29, 2014.
