Around 100 masterpieces from the ALBERTINA Museum’s Photographic Collection provide an overview of various genres such as portrait, architectural, and landscape photography while also introducing important photographic movements. The latter include Pictorialism, with Heinrich Kühn’s fine clay studies and nudes by Rudolf Koppitz; New Objectivity, with architectural studies by Albert Renger-Patzsch and Ruth Hallensleben; and also 20th-century street life and documentary photography by figures such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Lisette Model, William Klein, Robert Frank, and Lee Friedlander.

Black & White kicks off a series of exhibitions that will present various aspects of the ALBERTINA Museum’s Photographic Collection at regular intervals.
