The Amateur: From Bauhaus to Instagram

03 Oct - 12 Jan 2020 / Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg (MKG), Steintorplatz, Hamburg, DE

The exhibition looks back from the vantage point of the present day at the history of this phenomenon. One focus of the historical section of the show is on the amateur photographers of the Bauhaus with their flouting of aesthetic rules, their specific mode of depicting the realities of life, and their vision of changing society. The exhibition will feature some 150 current and historical international works by amateur photographers as well as artworks with amateurs as their subject.
