For the first time, the exhibition “SUBJECT and OBJECT. PHOTO RHINE RUHR” (curated by Ralph Goertz with Gregor Jansen and Dana Bergmann” will examine the relationships between the different photographic positions that have developed in the cities of the Rhineland as well as the Ruhr and at the regions’ art academies since the 1960s. The exhibition also presents central positions from three generations as well as similarities and differences between the artistic approaches, with a focus on positions that have received less attention. Subject and Object. Photo Rhine Ruhr at Kunsthalle Düsseldorf with 107 artists and more than 600 works undertakes a dialogic and thought-provoking examination of this development for the first time.
