ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
In 1927, a few years before August Sander made a name for himself with his photo book Face of Our Time - the first installment of his epochal portraiture project People of the 20th Century - he travelled to Italy with his friend, the writer Ludwig Mathar. For several weeks, they traipsed around the island of Sardinia, which was viewed as a mysterious, difficult and virtually exotic travel destination. For a book project with Ludwig Mathar that would never come to fruition, Sander took several hundred photographs of the local architecture, landscape, people and customs. These photographs represent a unique artistic and ethnographic visual account of this "unkown island" (Ludwig Mathar). The collection display presents some 30 photographs by August Sander from the collections of the Ann and Jürgen Wilde Foundation.
