KATHARINA SIEVERDING - Watching the Sun at Midnight
Sat 28 August 2021 – Sun 09 January 2022, Museum Frieder Burda

Anyone who sees Katharina Sieverding's numerous large-format self-portraits - some of them solarizingly alienated or metallically overlaid - suspects that no compromises are made here artistically. It is no coincidence that the artist is still considered one of the most important representatives of her generation in Germany - and at the same time a timeless pioneer of international photography. The exhibition is curated by Udo Kittelmann in collaboration with Katharina Sieverding.
