We love Photography!
20 years of Art Collection Deutsche Börse
1 February until 24 May 2019
Deutsche Börse AG, The Cube, Eschborn
In 2019 we are celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Art Collection Deutsche Börse with numerous exhibitions and events. Under the motto "From another perspective", we invited experts to share their view on the collection with us. This way, a varied, constantly changing insight into the most important positions of the Art Collection Deutsche Börse is formed.
The anniversary program kicked off with the exhibition "We love Photography!" curated by British photographer Martin Parr, which showcased around 130 works by 56 artists that he selected from the Art Collection Deutsche Börse. The exhibition featured big names in the history of photography such as Walker Evans or Diane Arbus as well as trailblazers in documentary photography, for example Bruce Davidson, Philip Jones Griffiths and Susan Meiselas. It also extended to younger artists such as Mike Brodie, Beate Gütschow and Geert Goiris.
"Photography, as we all know, seems to be the art form in modern times. Through photography, the individual can demonstrate and explore their relationship with our complex, ever-changing world. Art Collection Deutsche Börse represents most of the significant developments in photography in recent years.", Martin Parr said about his selection.
British artist Martin Parr is considered one of the most important personalities of contemporary photography. He is a member of the acclaimed photographic cooperative Magnum Photos, a curator, collector, and has established his own photography foundation, the Martin Parr Foundation. Parr's work has been represented in the Art Collection Deutsche Börse for many years.
