Düsseldorf photographic art has been an essential part of the gallery’s program for more than 40 years. This exhibition focuses on different work cycles by Elger Esser, Candida Höfer, Thomas Ruff and Thomas Struth who exhibited at the gallery already shortly upon graduation. They have had a decisive influence on the paradigm shift from photography to photo art and are among the best-known photo artists of the present day. In addition, works by the Chinese photo artist Chen Wei from his well-known nightclub cycle are on display. Interesting political and aesthetic juxtapositions have emerged in works that question nature and the human habitat, both in terms of form and content.
