Albert Renger-Patzsch (Würzburg, 1897-Wamel, 1966) is regarded as one of the most influential photographers of the 20th century. He was one of the key exponents of German New Objectivity, an artistic movement that arose after the First World War that, in general terms and as a reaction to the preceding wave of Expressionism, aimed to achieve the most objective representation of the world possible. This exhibition, one of the biggest Renger-Patzsch retrospectives to date, includes 185 photographs and a variety of documents. In the artwork, it's possible to appreciate the extreme originality of the photographer, with his sober images and rigorously technical and formal approach where the camera is used to intensify our conscience and perspective on things.
