Albert Renger-Patzsch
from 17 October 2017
until 21 January 2018
Jeu de Paume, Paris

In addition to his role in the artistic movement known as New Objectivity, which emerged in Germany in the early 1920s, in the present day Albert Renger-Patzsch (1897-1966) is considered one of the most important and influential figures in the history of 20th-century photography.

The aim of this exhibition is to rediscover and pay tribute to the legacy of this unique photographer in the conviction that his work offers a context for encouraging reflection on the nature and artistic and speculative potential of photography within the framework of contemporary art and culture.

Curator : Sergio Mah, professeur à Universidad NOVA, Lisbonne.
