One artist, 619 Portraits: People of the 20th Century
Starting on the March 4, 2014 Julian Sander will present the first of seven sequential exhibitions corresponding to the 7 Volumes of People of the 20th Century. In the seven groups "The Farmer", "The Skilled Tradesman", "The Woman", "Classes and Professions", "The Artists", "The City", and "The Last People" August Sander showed the full spectrum of German society in a selection of 619 photographs.
"I conceived the August Sander Cycle to fulfill a long existing dream. I want to give insight into the work of August Sander from a personal and humanist viewpoint. I personally feel that Augusts understanding of and respect for humanity was his greatest asset and the force behind his work" says Julian Sander, owner of the FEROZ Galerie. "To date this complete body of work has only been shown one time, as part of the Sao Paolo Bienial in 2012. We are very proud to show the complete project for the first time in Germany."
