Join Isa Lorenzo and Irwin Cruz as they hold a conversation over Zeitgeist becomes form, an exhibition covering 50 years of German fashion photography. The conversation will be on the last day of the exhibition.
The two will discuss how homegrown art movements, technique and tradition have influenced the way the country’s photographers represent fashion. They will also situate select photographs and their creators within the context of postwar German history, and the design milieu in the country and further afield.
