The exhibition shines a light on the work of Marta Hoepffner (1912–2000), a key representative of experimental photography. To date, her oeuvre is little-known and rarely shown. With over 50 works, this first extensive show dedicated to the photographer by the Zeppelin Museum provides a comprehensive insight into her work.
Her works are juxtaposed with over 20 paintings by Willi Baumeister (1889-1955). From 1929 onwards, Baumeister, one of the most important abstract painters, was Hoepffner’s professor at the Frankfurt Art School. When he was dismissed from his professorship in 1933, she showed her solidarity by also leaving the school.
The impulses Hoepffner received from Baumeister defined her artistic development. Modern painting trained her eye and formed the basis of her work. Although at first sight, the two artists could not be more different, they are linked by their path into abstraction and their departure from representationalism.
The show presents Hoepffner’s and Baumeister’s multi-faceted oeuvres with exhibits from the 1910s to the 1970s.
