Museum für Fotografie

The publisher and editor-in-chief of the photography magazine FOTOGRAFIE and the art magazine APEX, Wolfgang Schulz, passed away on Tuesday 14 July 2020 at the age of 75 in Cologne, with his family by his side.

As the editor of the magazine FOTOGRAFIE, through his bold and visionary work, Wolfgang Schulz created a high-profile forum for the emerging photography scene of the 1970s and ’80s in Germany. The magazine reflected his own intellectual stance, the spirit of the counter-culture and of subjectivity. Throughout his life, photography remained a faithful companion.

In the exhibition Wolfgang Schulz and the Photography Scene around 1980, the Berlin Museum für Fotografie is currently presenting Schulz’s work as a photographer and publisher. After the closure of the Museum für Fotografie in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the exhibition was opened to the public two days after his passing, and will remain open until 11 October 2020.
