On the occasion of the 250 year jubilee of the Leipzig and Dresden Academies of Art, an exhibition is being held at the Lipsiusbau in Dresden, presenting a selection of Timm Rautert's photographic works, as well as pieces by his former students.
Rautert (1941), who was a professor at the Leipzig High School for Graphic and Book Art from 1993 to 2008, is considered to have had a most important influence on the direction taken by contemporary German photography. He belongs to the photographic generation whose work opened it up to artistic freedom, who supported academic activities related to the medium, and promoted the acceptance of photography within contemporary art collections.
The exhibition also presents a circle of younger photographers revolving around Rautert, including Claudia Angelmaier, Viktoria Binschtok, Bernhard Fuchs, Sven Johne, Ricarda Roggan, Adrian Sauer, Sebastian Stumpf, Anett Stuth and Tobias Zielony.
