The Phenomenon Großmann Encounters Artistic Photography

Museum für Neue Kunst

New media change the way we see. The Freiburg painter and draftsman Rudolf Großmann (1882-1941) lived at a time when photography was beginning to establish itself as a mass medium. How did it influence his perception and how strongly is this expressed in his graphics? What interactions arose? The exhibition also takes a look at the present and allows Großmann's drawings to enter into a dialogue with current photographic forms of expression from the DZ BANK Art Foundation.
