13 Feb – 12 Apr 2020

August Sander: New Women, New Men, and New Identities

About

In partnership with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Hauser & Wirth presents ‘August Sander: New Women, New Men, and New Identities,’ marking the first solo exhibition in Los Angeles in over a decade devoted to renowned German photographer August Sander’s pioneering work. Hosted in the gallery’s Book & Printed Matter Lab, the exhibition brings together portraits by Sander and showcases them alongside original examples of groundbreaking gay and lesbian magazines (the first ever published), pamphlets, scientific studies, books, and other documents that provide unique insight into the trailblazing activities of the publishers, activists, and researchers who worked to further advance social change.

‘New Women, New Men, and New Identities’ is curated by Stephanie Barron, senior curator and head of modern art, Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), and independent curator Nana Bahlmann. The exhibition is a project of ‘Weimar Variations,’ a collection of public events related to the LA Phil’s month-long, citywide festival ‘Weimar Republic: Germany 1918 – 1933,’ a wide-ranging and dramatic array of programs led by Conductor Laureate Esa-Pekka Salonen and exploring the musical culture of the politically-charged Weimar era (1918 – 1933) in Germany.
