Arnold Schönberg in Focus. Photographs 1880 - 1950


An exhibition as an open archive: 3,500 historic photographs surviving in Schönberg’s archive illuminate the medium’s development, providing an authentic and moving view of the artist, paterfamilias, friend and contemporary.
A cultural and quotidian history in images: Visitors accompany Schönberg on his travels, encounter him in his private apartments, take part in his life full of checkered history.
A variety of photographical objects: Prints from the photo shop and large-format artist’s enlargements are found among family albums and cameras from Schönberg’s time.
