Antlitz Der Zeit/face Of The Time: August Sander

Antlitz Der Zeit/Face of the Time will be the first exhibition in Vancouver of work by renowned German photographer August Sander. Orginally published in 1929, the exhibition of 60 portraits from his series People of the 20th Century, document the appearance of Germans from all walks of life - artists, intellectuals, bureaucrats, industrialists, farmers and laborers.

For Sander, a pioneer of the New Objectivity, photography was above all a medium for the representation and realistic rendering of selected subjects. Sander’s goal was that these photographs should afford a comprehensive portrait of German society in a clearly defined historical period.

Supported by the Canada Council and The Goethe Institute in Vancouver.
