August Sander Cycle Part 1 – Antlitz der Zeit

24 Jan - 28 Feb, 2014

Location: Gallery Feroz Bonn

an August Sander solo show

The first segment of this series is an exhibition of the 60 photographs from August Sander’s first book, Antlitz der Zeit (Face of Our Time), published in 1929 by the Kurt Wolff Verlag and the Transmare Verlag Munich. This book, with an introduction by Alfred Döblin, was the preview to Sander’s greater project, Menschen des 20. Jahrhundert (People of the 20th Century), which was to be published later. In 1936, Antlitz der Zeit was condemned, the books were seized and the printing plates destroyed.
