Gallery Talk: Uniformity—August Sander, Timm Rautert and Tsui Kuang‑Yu

Gallery Talk: Uniformity—August Sander, Timm Rautert and Tsui Kuang‑Yu

Join curator Lynette Roth on Tuesday, Dec. 12 for a closer look at three different works—two series of portrait photographs from the Busch-Reisinger Museum collection and a video installation on loan—that rely on a systematized artistic format to examine and critique uniformity. Uniforms, which are at play in these works, can be used to delineate between those who “belong” and those who do not. Roth will discuss August Sander’s ambitious compendium of photographs “People of the Twentieth Century”—conceived as an atlas of interwar German society—as it relates to work by contemporary artists Timm Rautert and Tsui Kuang‑Yu.

Gallery talks are limited to 18 people and registration is required. You can register by clicking on the event on this form, beginning at 10am the day of the talk.
