The GROSSMANN phenomenon meets photography

Museum für Neue Kunst

New media change the way we see. The Freiburg painter and draughtsman 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: How does the ubiquitous digital photography with its often predefined filter effects shape the way we see today?
