Summary

The portrait is one of art's traditional motifs and was a strong motivational force for the invention of photography in the 19th century. The human image has undergone permanent change. The project A century of photographs takes us on a trip through time: from photography's beginnings with the daguerreotype and the talbotype to the digital present and the issue of the end of the classic portrait. A selection of works from 40 international artists is presented; these works relate to each other and, thanks to their reception today, are being re-interpreted within new contexts. Featuring a diverse range of photographic artists including Hans Peter Feldmann, Nan Goldin, Roni Horn, Cindy Sherman and Andy Warhol among many others.
