FOTOGAGA. Max Ernst and Photography
A Visit from the Würth Collection

18.10.2024 to 27.04.2025
Museum für Fotografie

Max Ernst (1891–1976) and photography? Ernst is one of the most important artists of Dadaism and Surrealism, who in his genre-bending works made the everyday strange and connected the realms of dream and reality. In the process, he constantly broke with artistic conventions and experimented with new techniques. He was not, however, a photographer. For the first time, this exhibition looks for points of connection between his oeuvre and photography. Some of these are direct, as in photo-collages, however they are often indirect, and serve to confuse. A representative selection of works by Max Ernst from the Würth Collection, including both prominent pieces and less well-known ones, form the core of this exhibition. Contextualising connections are drawn between these works and contemporary and historical references, with the selection complemented by works from the Kunstbibliothek, the Kupferstichkabinett and the Nationalgalerie, as well as by pieces from other collections.
