Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg Amateur Photography From Bauhaus to Instagram

The publication Amateur Photography. From Bauhaus to Instagram will take a closer look at amateur photography and its potential for innovation. With billions of smartphone owners around the world sharing daily snapshots of their lives, photography is taken for granted today as a means of constant communication, making the subject of the amateur more topical than ever. Alongside the steady drive for greater professionalism ever since photography was invented, the creative and democratic potential of amateur photography has likewise lost nothing of its importance. The catalog looks back from the vantage point of the present day at the history of this phenomenon. One focus of the historical section of the show is on the amateur photographers of the Bauhaus with their flouting of aesthetic rules, their specific mode of depicting the realities of life, and their vision of changing society.
