Raghubir Singh. Kolkata
July 9 – November 6, 2022
The Indian photographer Raghubir Singh (1942–1999) repeatedly returned to Kolkata (called Calcutta until 2001), and over the years he created a complex and multilayered photographic portrait of the city. In this way, the different historical layers are equally represented in the photograph. Singh’s photographs are a cosmopolitan’s homage to a cosmopolitan city. In the photography room, the Museum Ludwig is presenting twelve photographs from Singh’s Calcutta series, which have been part of the collection since 2017.
