Sibylle Bergemann (1941-2010) is one of the most famous German photographers. Over more than four decades, the Berlin-based photographer passionately created an extraordinary oeuvre of fashion and portrait photographs, literary reportages and atmospheric series. The focus was always on people.
In the GDR, Bergemann worked freelance and continuously on assignment for various art and culture magazines such as "Das Magazin", "Der Sonntag" or "Sibylle. Magazine for Fashion and Culture". After the opening of the Wall, she co-founded OSTKREUZ - Agentur der Fotografen. Since the 1990s, she has photographed for "GEO", "Die Zeit", "Stern" or "New York Times Magazine", among others.
The exhibition shows over 200 photographs from the museum's collection and from the photographer's estate. Selected motifs from her early work will also be exhibited for the first time.
