Aenne Biermann: Intimacy with Things

Aenne Biermann: Intimacy with Things


Aenne Biermann (1898–1933) is one of the major names of 1920s and ’30s photography. In just seven years, this self-taught artist became a well-known figure in German avant-garde photography, taking part in all the major exhibitions. With around 130 photographs – made up of a core of works from the collections of Museum Folkwang and complemented by important loans – this exhibition reveals the full spectrum of her thematic interests.

In cooperation with the Bavarian State Painting Collections, Ann and Jürgen Wilde Foundation, Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich.
