Invited to mount an exhibition at the Teatro Fernán Gómez in Madrid, Spanish photographer Cristina de Middel chose to display all her images in exactly the way she has them stored in her studio—in colossal, gorgeous chaos. The result is „Muchismo", a unique display of the photographer’s entire oeuvre.
Varied and entertaining, at times playful and bizarre, "Muchismo" gives de Middel a chance…

“While I may be the first woman in this office, I will not be the last.“ (Kamala Harris)
The legal right of women to vote was established in the United States only 100 years ago; many other countries introduced women's suffrage even later. For a long time, women weren’t involved in decision making, in creative processes or in politics – and an inequality still exists…. Now Kamala Harris…
Never before have we come so close to the master.
Dürer was provocative, curious, a brilliant creator and a visionary genius. He painted himself with equal self-assurance, wether in the pose of Christ or completely naked, was a master of self-marketing, and created the first logo in history with his initials.
Dürer – Meisterwerke im Detail looks at all areas of the artist's wide-ranging production…
An outstanding artist and a renowned photographer:
The story of Niki de Saint Phalle (1930-2002) is that of an artist on a quest for emancipation in a world dominated by men. Her highly individual stance and her profoundly innovative oeuvre left a firm imprint on the cultural landscape of the 20th century.
In the male-dominated world of American photography Margaret Bourke-White (1904-1971) was…

“The only revolutionary force is the power of human creativity.“ (Joseph Beuys)
Joseph Beuys (1921-1986) became one of the most charismatic creative personalities of the 20th century. His extensive work is grounded in concepts of humanism and social philosophy and culminates in his "extended definition of art" and the idea of social sculpture.
Founded in 2016, Hartmann Books concentrates on producing high quality photo books which are characterized by a balanced interplay of subject, form, content and design. The small publishing house publishes only 10-12 titles a year, but already presents an impressive portfolio.
Described as a “photographer without a camera”, Katrien De Blauwer blends photographic material from old international magazines and newspapers to create new images.
She is one of today’s most distinguished photomontage artists.
We'd like to present three of her lovely book projects: Why I hate cars, I Close My Eyes, Then I Drift Away and cheveux longs... cheveux courts.
Jules Chéret lead the way for this art form and Henri Toulouse-Lautrec perfected it: At the end of the 19th century the poster was not merely a means of advertisement or political campaigns. Sketched by artists, posters became a favourable artwork to collect, poster-societies were installed and poster-exhibitions presented the diversity of designs. The Affichomanie reached its climax.
After the turn…
Time and again, she appears in various states of undress: Venus, the goddess – whether she was painted by Botticelli and Cabanel or Cranach, Titian and Velázquez. And Eve, the seductress - she's also naked. Goya's Maja, Manet's Olympia, Klimt's Judith - they refer to Venus and Eve, the prototypes of the nude.
Albrecht Dürer depicted himself naked, Mapplethorpe's self-portrait is more explicit.…
Doisneau's „Kiss by the Hôtel de Ville" is one of the most famous photographs in the world. In these days when the coronavirus has changed the way we live, the physical closeness shown here seems almost surreal - cafés and streets full of people, no face covering and no social distance. Certainly today's street photographers will also produce iconic images of these strange times: What they will…
In her drawings, photographs, installations and books, American Artist Roni Horn has been exploring the nature of water and its universal qualities for over 30 years:
“Water… reassures you, affirms you, shows you who you are, ... sighs, sucks, laughs, splishes, splashes, slashes, washes, murmurs, gushes, bubbles, babbles, shimmers, shines, gleams.“
Roni Horn's Dictionary of Water, for example,…
2020 marks the 500th anniversary of Raphael's death.
Crowned the “Prince of Painters” by Giorgio Vasari, Raphael (1483–1520) stands as one of the most popular artists of the Italian Renaissance.
Around 1515, Raphael designed a set of tapestries for Leo X, the first Medici pope. Now lost, these spectacular, grand-scale textiles are reconstructed in “Raphael’s Tapestries“ and set among…
