Michael Schmidt, A new German Perspective

Michael Schmidt (1945-2014) occupies a unique position in contemporary German photography.

Born in Berlin, he was self-taught, adopting photography as his artistic medium in the mid-1960s. For each of his themes, he developed his own approach to reality. The Michael Schmidt retrospective at the Jeu de Paume, the most comprehensive to date, offers a complete overview of his oeuvre from 1965 to 2014.

This retrospective has been and will be presented at Nationalgalerie im Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart in Berlin, at Jeu de Paume in Paris, at Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid and at Albertina in Vienne.

Curators: Thomas Weski and Laura Bielau.
