Photography for Children

For the first time, the Museum für Fotografie is opening its doors explicitly to children. Some 160 works illustrate the uses of photography and its compositional and expressive forms, from the early years right through to the present.

Artists such as Lyonel Feininger or Hannah Höch dealt with the connection between childhood and imaginative perception in their work. In this vein, the exhibition is broken up into 10 associative sections, each of which feature a wealth of diverse images and stories.

They touch upon themes related to conceiving, collecting and narrating images; to reading numbers, letters or clouds; to discoveries in everyday life, at school or while travelling; to natural phenomena in the city and the countryside, family albums and photo booths. The play of colour, light, reflections and materials are as important here as cryptic elements, or moments of fun and seriousness. A selection of printed matter, drawings, sculptural objects and films round off the show, which focuses on the concrete and sensuous materiality of original photographs, and allows visitors to attend a “school of seeing”.
