The magic Eye
14.5. — 11.9.2022
The Bucerius Kunst Forum is presenting the first international survey exhibition of the work of Hamburg-born photographer Herbert List (1903 – 1975) in more than two decades. The retrospective spans his entire career, from Surrealist works before 1945 in which he endeavoured to capture enigmatic and ambiguous aspects of reality, to his visions of life in antiquity and extensive pictorial accounts of non-European cultures, all the way to the male nudes with which List avowed his own homosexuality.
The exhibition is the Bucerius Kunst Forum‘s contribution to the Triennial of Photography Hamburg 2022.
The exhibition is sponsored by
At the same time, from 19 May to 18 September 2022, the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe is showing the exhibition Präuschers Panoptikum. Ein Bilderbuch von Herbert List in collaboration with Bonartes Wien.
