Bernd, Hilla and the Others / Photography from Dusseldorf
Huis Marseille, Museum voor Fotografie, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
09.03.2018 – 03.06.2018
In the spring of 2018 Huis Marseille will be devoted to the so-called Düsseldorfer Photoschule, photographers who studied at the Dusseldorf Art Academy under Bernd and Hilla Becher or their successors Thomas Ruff and Andreas Gursky. The photographic vision of Bernd and Hilla Becher was so influential and successful that these photographers – also known as the Becher-Schüler – have left their stamp on contemporary photography from the mid-1970s onwards. Huis Marseille has a considerable collection of photographs from the Dusseldorf school. These will be presented in the exhibition alongside early, mostly unknown work by photographers such as Höfer, Ruff and Struth, as well as more recent work by young and upcoming photographers.
Bernd & Hilla Becher, Boris Becker, Laurenz Berges, Frank Breuer, Louisa Clement, Elger Esser, Claudia Fährenkemper, Andreas Gursky, Candida Höfer, Axel Hütte, Christof Klute, Simone Nieweg, Tata Ronkholz, Thomas Ruff, Jörg Sasse, Martina Sauter, Thomas Struth, and Anna Vogel.
