The exhibition ‹Zusammenleben› [‹Living Together›] unites photographs by Joachim Brohm, Ute Mahler and John Myers from the 1970s and 1980s. As different as the artistic points of view may seem at first sight, they complement each other in their individual view of social, as well as private structures and habits.

The exhibition ‹Heide Stolz. Affairs› shows a selection of 62 photographs by the artist Heide Stolz, who died in 1985. Still affecting today, her work has lost none of its topicality and enlightening impact.

A man with an umbrella, a mask, various marine snail species – the sometimes puzzling motifs suggest either calm or directed movement in Takeshi Makishima’s artworks.

Lock the door, turn the lights off, and ... that’s it? The great photographers still on display until 24 January at ‹Living together› and ‹Affairs› deserve more than a silent farewell. Enjoy their amazing work and take a virtual tour of the exhibitions at the Kunsthalle Darmstadt!

Moreover, we invited curator Stefan-Maria Mittendorf and Magdalena Gerl—friend, accomplice, and former model of Heide Stolz. In their conversation they set out to investigate her artistic practice and life in rowdy Munich-Schwabing in the 1960s. The conversation in German language was recorded in advance.
