Museum für Fotografie
Wed 3 November 2004 - until further notice
The double exhibition - 'Us and Them' and 'Sex and Landscapes' - with which the Helmut Newton Foundation opened in June 2004, and which can still be visited at the first floor of the former Landwehrkasino until the beginning of 2005, is being supplemented by a presentation of Helmut Newton's personal items from 3 November 2004.
For this exhibition, entitled 'Private Property', further spacious exhibition rooms have been set up at ground level in the Museum for Photography. The show includes Newton's cameras, his own photo and art collection, the famous Newton-Mobile, his library and parts of his office at Monte Carlo. It also includes posters of his exhibitions and numerous publications of Helmut Newton's photographs.
The group project 'Us and Them' is a type of photographic diary by Helmut Newton and June Newton, dedicated to the portrait. The exhibition 'Sex and Landscape', on the other hand, shows a different Helmut Newton. Here, large-scale scenes and landscapes, in both black and white and colour, dating from the 1970s until today, are on show side by side. There are dark, clouded seascapes and breaking waves at Monte Carlo, Baroque statues in an Italian town, a seemingly endless desert highway nearby Las Vegas, and the Berliner Grunewald lake, all of them tinted with glamour and interwoven with sexual references to the female body.
