Dennis Stock

Made in USA

The photographer Dennis Stock, born in New York in 1928, became internationally known at the end of the 1950s with his photographs of James Dean. The exhibition, comprising 119 b/w photographs, provided an outline of his work in the years between 1951 and 1971. Dennis Stock accompanied the shooting of numerous films and his pictures captured the world of fame and stardom. He documented the American jazz scene and its great personalities, as well as the classical American myths.
The dream of liberty, mobility and individuality – the „American way of life“ – is the consistent subject of his work. His photographs depict the world of the American counter culture: colorful festivals in the Southern States, hippies, bikers, and the most diverse ways of life and culture.

The exhibition is no longer available.

La Bohème

Toulouse-Lautrec and the Masters of Montmartre

WELCOME TO MONTMARTRE! To mark the beginning of 2019, the Institute for Cultural Exchange, in collaboration with the Galerie Stihl and the Musée d’Ixelles will present the extensive lithographic work of Toulouse-Lautrec from 26 January to 22 April 2019. From the streets of Montmartre to the exhibition galleries of the City of Waiblingen: Toulouse-Lautrec, like no one else, was able to capture the attitude towards the Parisian nightlife  through reduced, but expressive forms as well as intense coloring. The relatively new medium of the poster turned gradually into a recognized art form, which radically changed the urban landscape during the Belle Époque. Accompanied by works of Lautrec’s processors and contemporaries, like Alfons Mucha, Théophile-Alexandre Steinlen or Félix Vallotton, the exhibition La Bohème. Toulouse-Lautrec and the Masters of Montmartre gives a wide-ranging insight into the fascinating world of poster art around 1900.

Exhibition opening: 25 January, 19:00 at Galerie Stihl Waiblingen
