Pho­to­g­ra­pher's Name
Aenne Bier­mann

Pho­tog­ra­phy Room Pre­sen­ta­tion

Start­ing June 16, 2018

Aenne Bi­er­­mann (1898–1933) took pho­­to­­graphs of her im­me­di­ate sur­round­in­gs from 1925 un­til her ear­­ly death, and this body of work helped shape mod­­er­nist pho­­tog­ra­­phy. Her es­­­tate re­­mains lost to this day, and on­­ly a few in­­sti­­tu­­tions hold orig­i­­nal prints by Bi­er­­mann. The Mu­se­um Lud­wig will now pre­sent its full col­lec­­tion of over twen­­ty of Bi­er­­mann’s pho­­to­­graphs for the first time.
