Photography

The exhibition sheds light on all creative phases of the Berlin photographer and photography teacher Arno Fischer (1927-2011). The starting point is the early work ‘Situation Berlin’, in which Fischer focused on the four-sector city. With the construction of the wall in 1961, a planned publication of the series was prohibited. In the works for the East German magazine ‘Sibylle’ and legendary portraits of Marlene Dietrich and other personalities, Fischer shows his qualities as a fashion and people photographer. Pictures of trips through the GDR, India, Africa and New York are another focus of the exhibition. The last part shows Polaroid photos from the artist’s garden, his refuge in Gransee near Berlin. He arranged these still lifes and detail shots in groups, which enhances the effect and strength of the statement. His black-and-white images continue to be style-defining for generations of photographers.
