Jeu de Paume, Paris

In addition to his role in the artistic movement known as New Objectivity, which emerged in Germany in the early 1920s, Albert Renger-Patzsch (1897-1966) is considered today one of the most important and influential figure in the history of 20th century photography.
This exhibition rediscovers and pays tribute to the legacy of this unique photographer with the conviction that his work encourages a reflection on the nature of photography and its artistic and speculative potential within the context of contemporary art and culture.

Exhibition organised par the MAPFRE Fundacion in cooperation with the Jeu de Paum, with the special collaboration and scientific support of the Fondation Ann & Jürgen Wilde, Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich.
