À propos de l'événement

Ben­jamin Katz

Ber­lin Havel­höhe, 1960/61

Pho­tog­ra­phy Room Pre­sen­ta­tion

6/7 – 9/22/2019

Re­cent­ly, the Mu­se­um Lud­wig was able to ac­quire the im­por­tant se­ries of pho­to­graphs Ber­lin Hav­el­höhe (1960/61) by Ben­jamin Katz. Suf­fer­ing from tu­ber­cu­lo­sis, Katz spent one and a half years in the Hav­el­höhe hos­pi­tal in Ber­lin and pho­to­graphed the pa­tients’ dai­ly life as well as the hos­pi­tal grounds and build­in­gs, which were orig­i­nal­ly used by the Nazi Reich­sakademie for the Luft­waffe. The pho­to­graphs rep­re­sent a so­cial as well as an ar­tis­tic doc­u­ment, since they re­cord Katz’s be­gin­n­in­gs as a pho­to­g­ra­pher.
