»#womenphotographer Vol. I«
Outstanding photographers of the 20th century

With works by Berenice Abbott, Merry Alpern, Diane Arbus, Elinor Carucci, Nan Goldin, Annette von Keudell, Germaine Krull, Dorothea Lange, Vivian Maier, Inge Morath, Ruth Orkin, Rosemarie Pierer, Dayanita Singh and Karin Székessy.

Women conquered the new medium of photography in the 19th century. As pioneers, they contributed essentialy to its development and the emergence of new photographic ways of seeing. The cyanotype photograms by Anna Atkins are among the first photographs published as scientific illustrations.

Photography enabled women to realize their vision of a self-determined, creative life, travel and earn their own living. In addition to portrait, fashion, and architectural photography, female photographers also excelled in photojournalism from the 1920s onwards. Often they focused on the everyday, on the living conditions of women and children, documented social marginal groups and examined the female body relentlessly with the camera.

Did they choose themes that are off the beaten track of world politics, as they have always been attributed to them by society? Or because they can gain intimate access to their subjects, which is denied to their male counterparts? Or does it finally exist, the female gaze?

The exhibition #womenphotographer Vol. I wants to give insights into the diverse work of female photographers and to initiate a deeper study of their view of the world.
