Part of the artistic movement known as New Objectivity, which emerged in Germany in the early 1920s, in the present day Albert Renger-Patzsch is considered one of the most important and influential figures in the history of 20th-century photography. His work offers a context for encouraging reflection on the nature and artistic and speculative potential of photography within the framework of contemporary art and culture.
The aim of this Jeu de Paume exhibition is to rediscover and pay tribute to his legacy.
