The internationally renowned photographer Walter Vogel is widely known for his unforgettable portraits of Pina Bausch and Joseph Beuys. What has, however, received less attention thus far is his art of photographing female beauty.

Unity of Nature

Alexander von Humboldt and the Americas
Alexander von Humboldt is known for his botanical expeditions that took place between 1799 to1804, and for the multi-volume Voyage aux regions équinoxiales du nouveau continent he subsequently produced. The exhibition catalogue traces the breadth and import of Humboldt’s influence through paintings and varied artifacts from the nineteenth century to the present. Included are essays by notable scholars, as well as an interview with Mark Dion that touches upon the actuality of the enlightened European voyager in contemporary global art.
