Seeing in Drawing
This exhibition is being realized in cooperation with the Leonhardi-Museum Dresden and will be the first to offer an overview of the oeuvre of drawings by Sebastian Rug (born in 1974). It will combine pieces from several of the artist’s creative phases.
Made in German
Leonard Freed took most of the photographs for his extensive reportage on the young Federal Republic of Germany in 1965 and published them in 1970 in the form of a photo book entitled Made in Germany.
The exhibition scheduled for summer 2013 at Museum Folkwang presents the story told by this important photographic essay in 107 original prints.
The exhibition is sponsored by Kunststiftung NRW (Arts Foundation of North Rhine-Westphalia).
The photographic collection at Museum Folkwang has been able to acquire another 50 photographs from the series Made in Germany from the US American photographer’s estate with the support of the Presse-Haus NRZ Foundation in Essen. Museum Folkwang has also received 67 photographs as a donation.
The Title is Continued in the Picture
Filmplakate von Hans Hillmann
Hans Hillmann (born in 1925) has been among the most important innovators of the film poster since the 1950s. The German Poster Museum at Museum Folkwang owns an almost complete collection of his works and in the exhibition The Title Is Continued in the Picture will, among other things, be showing his exemplary posters for the Atlas film distributor and Walter Kirchner’s New Film Art.
