Photo Exhibition in the Foyer of DFF
from 16th of March
The connection of Magnum photographers to film is almost as old as the Magnum Photos, Inc. agency itself. Not only have they accompanied countless shoots on set, but they have also absorbed the visual language of cinema in their work and sometimes actively shaped it.
Under the title “Viewfinder – Photography and Film in Dialogue”, the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation and the DFF – Deutsches Filminstitut & Filmmuseum collaborate to explore this exciting constellation. The DFF presents the photo exhibition “Through the Eyes of Magnum”, which is on display in the museum’s foyer and presents works from the Deutsche Börse Art Collection by Philipp Jones Griffiths, Harry Gruyaert, Thomas Hoepker and Alec Soth, among others.
An accompanying film series is planned. Our cinema is expected to re-open in April.
Viewfinder – Photography and Film in Dialogue
The close relation of photography and film is not only reflected in their related techniques. Throughout the history of the two media, their mutual influence is obvious: photography is a recurring theme in the various film genres, and it often uses cinematic language.
To explore the relationship between photography and film, the DFF – Deutsches Filminstitut & Filmmuseum and the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation launched a new collaboration in November 2019 with the series “Viewfinder – Photography and Film in Dialogue”.
