Arvid Gutschow and Alfred Ehrhardt encounter in this exhibition follows an extensive donation to the foundation by Arvid Gutschow, an important forerunner of the New Photography, whose vision and choice of motifs are closely related to those of Alfred Ehrhardt. A part of the exhibition juxtaposes the landscape photographs of Gutschow and Ehrhardt, both self-taught photographers, as a demonstration of their shared interest in the development and disparition of structures and patterns. The exhibition also demonstrates how Ehrhardt adapted and refined Gutschow’s structure-based perspective and the stylistic tendencies of the New Photography. The exhibition includes 60 photographs by Arvid Gutschow and 10 photographs by Alfred Ehrhardt.
