Icons & titles

The in focus Gallery will open new gallery rooms on Saturday, October 12th, 7 pm - 9.30 pm with the exhibition: titles & icons:

There are pictures that everyone knows. Whether you have already dealt with photography and its history or not - some pictures are in the visual memory of the 21 Century firmly anchored. As these special meaning arises, why are these photos so well known? Why they are put on a book cover, which in turn provide for wide dissemination and awareness? Which photo is on the cover of a book? And why is this just put on the cover? Is the importance of the respective work in the foreground or is it the effect which causes a photo on the viewer?

The exhibition "icons and titles" is dedicated to exactly these questions and leads based on 50 selected works and books through the recent history of photography. For familiar and unfamiliar, this is an opportunity to enforce intensively with photography.
