For the autodidact Aenne Biermann (1898-1933) the camera was a means of closing in on things and situations in her immediate environment. From the mid 1920s onwards she found great pleasure in capturing unfamiliar and unexpected views of everyday experiences and events in her photographs. Although Aenne Biermann worked in relative isolation with regard to the avant-garde developments in larger cities, comprehensive displays of her work were shown at all major modern photographic exhibitions from 1929 onwards. Her oeuvre, created within just a few years – Aenne Biermann died in 1933 following an illness – is now regarded as one of the most important within the Neues Sehen (New Vision) movement in photography and New Objectivity. The exhibition comprises some 100 original photographs from the holdings of the Ann and Jürgen Wilde Foundation that boasts one of the most extensive collections of Aenne Biermann’s work. Selected works from public and private collections, together with records and archival documents, illuminate the artist’s work and career.

The Staatliche Graphische Sammlung München is home to one of the most internationally significant collections of 15th German broadsheets and popular prints. The earliest European woodcuts emerged around 1400. While the process for printing on fabric was already known, it was during this time that pictures were first printed onto a new kind of support: paper. This allowed for compositions to be inexpensively reproduced in large editions. It was only through this that broader circles of the population had access to and could afford their own depictions. Religious subjects, which were used for private devotion, were most in demand. These early sheets are significant not only as historical documents. They are in fact superlative masterworks of linear expressiveness: the straight lines seek to convey an immediate statement, leading to bold, striking works. No collection in the world is able to demonstrate the early years of the woodcut as brilliantly as Munich’s Graphische Sammlung. The cradle of the European printmaking tradition is proudly safeguarded here. Thanks to the generous financial support of the Edith-Haberland-Wagner-Stiftung, all works have been comprehensively conserved, providing occasion for a select display of impressive sheets. The Ernst von Siemens Art Foundation generously sponsored the inventory catalogue.

With more than twenty million inhabitants in its Metropolitan area, São Paulo is a South American megacity with complex problems like extreme traffic, air pollution, water shortage, and informal settlements.  At the same time, the city has invested in architectural infrastructures for decades, creating inclusive places for urban society. The exhibition presents these buildings and projects, showing their possibilities and potentials. The selected examples have been built from the 1960s to the present, and range from a canopy in a public park to large multifunctional buildings. The most ambitious examples have collective programs that include sports, culture, health and gastronomical facilities. What all the selected projects share is their ability to create places of cooperation far beyond their functionality.
