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.

Supernatural

Sculptural Visions of the Body

The exhibition project Supernatural. Sculptural Visions of the Body is designed in collaboration with the Kunsthalle Tübingen and will there be presented from October 10, 2020 until March 7, 2021. The group show brings together international artists like Isa Genzken, Sam Jinks or Anna Uddenberg who reflect on future body images in the face of genetic engineering and digital transformation. Approximately 35 exhibits push the boundaries of sculpture in the age of the Anthropocene and enable new design possibilities by allowing them to step into the realm of imagination – as supernatural hybrid beings.

Toulouse-Lautrec and the Masters of Montmartre

Toulouse-Lautrec and the Masters of Montmartre – the successful exhibition of the Institute for Cultural Exchange is moving to its next venue: From February 15 to May 26, 2020, Toulouse-Lautrec’s extensive lithographic work from the collection of Muséé d’Ixelles will be on view at the Victoria Art Gallery in Bath. Toulouse-Lautrec, like no one else, was able to capture the atmosphere of the Parisian nightlife through reduced, but expressive forms as well as intense coloring.  Accompanied by works of Lautrec’s predecessors and contemporaries, like Alfons Mucha, Théophile-Alexandre Steinlen or Félix Vallotton, the exhibition gives a profound insight into the fascinating world of the art poster around 1900.
