LUDWIGGALERIE, Schloss Oberhausen
SHOOT! SHOOT! SHOOT!
Photographs from the 60s and 70s from the Nicola Erni Collection
21.01.2018 through 27.05.2018
Vernissage: Saturday, 20. January 2018, 7:00pm
Brigitte Bardot with a blonde mane, Yves Saint-Laurent stark naked and Mick Jagger with a fur hat: icons from the worlds of film, fashion and music photographed by superstars such as Richard Avedon, Bert Stern and Helmut Newton resuscitate in the LUDWIGGALERIE the verve of life of the 1960s and 1970s.
The black and white photographs presented on coloured museum walls radiate with aplomb. Party, politics, fashion, music, art and the cult of the body are pictorially depicted by Warhol's Factory and the associated New York scene.
The Beatles letting off heat with a pillow fight, Twiggy as the new, androgynous supermodel and the stars of Hollywood reflect the important moments in time through impressive portraits.
Over 200 photographs from the Swiss Nicola Erni Collection document a Who's Who of celebrity society. With their adulation of the cult of the person, sensual pleasure and total devotion to the moment the photographs exude a sense of uninterrupted fascination.
The exhibition has been conceptualized in the Stadtmuseum Munich by Dr. Ulrich Pohlmann and Ira Stehmann.
