Barbara Klemm

November 21 to December 12

This solo exhibition presents photographs by one of Germany's most distinguished photographers. Spanning forty years, Barbara Klemm’s works bear witness to Germany's recent history, in a country that was divided for decades. Many of her pictures have become “icons of contemporary history”, shaping the cultural memory of several generations. She has created a body of photographs which combine the documentary and the artistic in a manner seldom encountered in German press photography. She adds her own perspective to the documentary genre, following artistic principles of composition. 


The exhibition was sponsored by: The Goethe Institut, Boston
