Historical streetscapes by Herbert Wendling
10 – 27 October 2014
For the fourth time in a row now, we are presenting a selection of historical streetscapes by Herbert Wendling. The exhibition of photographs was prepared in co-operation with Edition Grabsdorf, a gallery and publishing house and the curator of the Wendling archives.
On show will be black and white photographs of the city Munich from the mid 1930s through to the 1960s. Next to motifs which may already be called classics, streetscapes will be shown that never have been on display before. Quite intentionally, none of the photographs have been “prettified” electronically, and they all will be available in various sizes and printed on different materials.
The photographs portray a Munich that is hard to imagine today. It is a city that has not yet been smartened up and slicked over, the landmarks and sights still display their simple beauty. Of particular interest are the post-war views and the efforts of rebuilding Munich.
The opening will held on Friday, 10 October, beginning 8 p.m. You are kindly invited to join us then, or to come and see the exhibition until 27 October. As usual, all the works displayed are also on view in our web shop. We are looking forward to your visit.
Together with the exhibition comes a 2015 calendar with 13 historical photographies.
