Under the title 'Chasing Dreams' Chaussee 36 presents one of Berlin’s great photographers: Erwin Blumenfeld. In collaboration with the Erwin Blumenfeld Estate and the legendary Howard Greenberg Gallery in New York, around 40 of Blumenfeld’s photographic studies and experimental depictions of the female body will be shown. These range from his surrealist nudes from the Paris period (1936–1941) to his graphic and illustrative works from the 1940s and 1950s, after the artist emigrated to the USA. The solo exhibition thus presents the broad artistic repertoire of Blumenfeld’s vision of the female nude, while providing exquisite insight into the technical diversity of one of the great photographic icons.
