Conceptual Framework

August Sander and Seydou Keïta: Portraiture and Social Identity unites two modern photography masters, whose images vividly capture the rapid social transformations of the twentieth century through the faces of everyday people. Encompassing select works from August Sander's portfolio "Anlitz der Zeit" (Face of Our Time) from the 1910s and 1920s, and from Seydou Keïta's portraiture of residents in Mali's capital city Bamako in the late 1940s and mid-1950s, the exhibition considers how two photographers documented shifting identities in Germany and Mali.
