Bröhan-Museum - Dieter Hacker: political photography (1974–1981)

During the 1970s, the artist Dieter Hacker (born in 1942), today best known for his painting, worked intensely with amateur photography as an artistic political medium as coeditor of the the journal “Volksfoto: Zeitung für Fotografie” with Andreas Seltzer. A total of six issues were accompanied by exhibitions in which analogous photographs that Hacker received from private individuals were used to create interactive installations. These installations explored the relationship between privacy and publicity, the individual and the mass, art and trash.
