The exhibition „Two Rivers“ presents the most important groups of photographic works by the german artist Joachim Brohm and the american photographer Alec Soth. In a world premiere, the show combines works from a total of ten series. The exhibition focuses on Alec Soth's work "Sleeping by the Missisippi" and Joachim Brohm's "Ruhr" series, which both portray people on the periphery of a river. Brohm is a visual artist who expresses himself through the medium of photography. Soth is a lyrical documentary photographer in the tradition of Robert Frank, Stephen Shore, and Joel Sternfeld. What unites the two is a documentary-artistic view that identifies them as sensitive documentarists of their social environment. The exhibition brings together a total of ten groups of works by the two photographers. In addition to the well-known series on the Ruhr and the Mississippi, rare portraits by Joachim Brohm and a new work by Alec Soth are also shown for the first time worldwide. On view are ‚Niagara’ and ‚Songbook’ by Alec Soth as well as ‚Ohio’, ‚Flash Ohio’, ‚Culatra’ and ‚Dessau Files’ by Joachim Brohm. (March 29 – July 7, 2019)
