About the exhibition
Collection+ | Rooms 22-24
More than 100 works by the photographer Friedrich Seidenstücker, together with numerous documents from the holdings of the collection of the Ann and Jürgen Wilde Foundation, are being shown in a special exhibition.
Friedrich Seidenstücker (1882–1966) was one of the foremost chroniclers of everyday life in Berlin at the time of the Weimar Republic. His atmospheric works recount casual incidents and events, lighthearted Sunday pleasures and the burdens of the working day, children’s street games and bustling crowds at stations and the zoo. Seidenstücker casts the people and the life of the German metropolis in an impish, even humorous light. His photographs of small tradespeople—coachmen, hawkers, porters, newspaper sellers—pay tribute to the hardship of big-city life, often exposing the contrasts and extremes of inter-war social reality in their backgrounds and on their perimeters.
