Conceptual Photography in Germany


Barbara Wolff was born in 1951 in Kyritz, and completed an apprenticeship as photographer in her father’s business before beginning her studies at the Academy of Visual Arts in Leipzig. Since 1973, she has had solo exhibitions and has participated in numerous national and international group exhibitions. In addition to her freelance work as photographer and graphic artist she currently teaches photography in the Department of Graphics and Media at the Munich School of Design.

In her lecture, Barbara Wolff will address the development of conceptual photography in Germany since the beginning of the eighties, spanning from the roots and background of photography in Germany, through artistic successes, to a consideration of the contemporary photography scene, education and possible future directions. With special attention to various forms of conceptual approaches, and with an extensive selection of pictures, Barbara Wolff hopes to offer an overview of changes in photography in the context of artistic developments. Works by the photographers August Sander, Andreas Gursky as well as Bernd and Hilla Becher will be particularly emphasized.
