Modern Times - Pictures of industry in paintings and photography

24.07.2022 - 09.10.2022


From July 24th to October 9th the Georg Schäfer Museum will present a large-scale exhibition devoted to the handling of industrial themes in painting and photography. The exhibition is realised in cooperation with Bucerius Kunst Forum, Hamburg, and the Münchner Stadtmuseum.

Never before has artist’s engagement with the emergence and progress of industry and the resulting changes in the landscape and working world been examined by way of a dialogue between the two media.
Modern Times. Industrial Themes in Painting and Photography brings together more than 100 paintings and photographs from 26 collections. Based on powerful images spanning a trajectory from the early days of industrialisation to the present day, and from Romanticism to contemporary photography, the show highlights how the artistic treatment of industrial themes has developed and changed over the past 175 years. On display are works by artists including Adolph von Menzel, Léon-Auguste Mellé, Albert Renger-Patzsch, August Sander, Conrad Felixmüller, Franz Radziwill, Walker Evans, Otto Steinert, Evelyn Richter, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Robert Voit, Thomas Struth and Inge Rambow.
