AUGUST SANDER Portrait of a society / HANNA PUTZ Portraits after S.

Coinciding with the August Sander exhibition at Westlicht, the center of photography in Vienna, the upper gallery features an installation by Hanna Putz, Portraits after S. The Vienna and Berlin based artist has been invited to curate a selection of her portraits.

Westlicht Gallery leaves nothing to be desired for with its great exhibitions, and this time, it’s doubling up with two coinciding ones, presenting the works of August Sander and Hanna Putz.  Sander’s iconic portraits are panoramatic of an era and examine the relationship between the individual and society, presenting a comprehensive social portrait of the German Weimar Republic. Hanna Putz’s installation complements Sander’s, and offers a contemporary female perspective on the raised concepts and social subjects. Her quietly powerful visual voice comes through loudly, so for the perfect combination of the two.
