Arno Fischer Photography Presented in Belarus

From October 1 to October 19, 2014, an exhibition of Arno Fischer, a legendary German photographer, is held in Belarus. The exhibition is organized by the Goethe Institute in Minsk and is hosted by the Center of Modern Art located at 3, Nekrasova Str., Minsk, Belarus.

Born in 1927 in Berlin, Arno Fischer became one of the most outstanding photographers of the second half of the twentieth century. A selection of about 140 photographs reflects different periods of Arno Fischer’s creative work.

The Institute for Foreign Cultural Relations (Germany) developed the concept of the exhibition.

The exhibition starts with the Fischer’s early photographic essay Situation Berlin featuring the city divided into four sectors. With the construction of the Berlin Wall in 1961, the publication of the pictures was banned. However, this series of photographs enabled the public to discover a talented photographer.

Moving on, the visitors to the show will be able to see Fischer’s photographs made for Sibylle, an East German culture and fashion magazine, and a series of portraits of celebrities, including Marlene Dietrich and Maya Plisetskaya.

The show is finished with a special installment of Fischer’s Polaroid pictures showing his garden in an intimate manner. Photographic masterpieces of still life and detail shots represent a concentration of the great artist’s work.
