Portrait of modern Germany
Contemporary German photography gets a double outing with two exhibitions held simultaneously at The National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo. Both "August Sander: Face of Our Time" and "Between Reality and the Image: Contemporary Positions in German Photography" provide an opportunity to view the history of German photography spanning the prewar period to the present day.
August Sander (1876-1964) created a naturalistic documentary style for his portraits of ordinary citizens in Weimar Germany (1919-1933).
Seven artists born in the 1960s and '70s are represented in "Between Reality and the Image," including digital photographer Loretta Lux (1969-), who uses high-tech computer digitization.
The exhibitions run through Dec. 18 at The National Museum of Modern Art, 3-1 Kitanomaru-koen, Chiyoda Ward, Tokyo. Opening hours are 10 a.m-5 p.m (till 7.30 p.m on Fridays, closed Mondays). Admission is 650 yen and includes both exhibitions. For further information, visit www.momat.go.jp
