Portraits in Series A Century of Photographs

Автор Gabriele Betancourt Nuñez, Ulrike Schneider

Год издания 2010

Раздел каталога История фотографии

The portrait is one of art’s traditional motifs and was a strong motivational force for the invention of photography in the 19th century. The human image has undergone permanent change. The project A century of photographs takes us on a trip through time: from photography’s beginnings with the daguerreotype and the talbotype to the digital present and the issue of the end of the classic portrait.
A selection of works from 35 international artists is presented; these works relate to each other and, thanks to their reception today, are being re-interpreted within new contexts.
