For the first time, works by the photographer Anne Winterer (1894 - 1938), whose estate has been in the museum's collection for several years, are being shown. From the mid-1920s to the mid-1930s, she ran the "Hehmke-Winterer Photographic Workshop" in Düsseldorf together with Erna Hehmke. During this time, she produced various photo series with a wide range of motifs. They show people and industry in the Ruhr region, landscapes on the Lower Rhine and in the Eifel, but also everyday life and leisure in the early 20th century. The exhibition makes it possible to rediscover the photographer, who died young, with her special view of places and people and provides insights into past living environments on the Rhine and Ruhr.
From 28 June 2024, St. Antony Hütte, Oberhausen
