LEE FRIEDLANDER Retrospective

C/O Berlin Foundation, Berlin, Germany
11 Sep - 3 Dec 2021

Hosted by C/O Berlin, the Lee Friedlander. Retrospective exhibition is now celebrating its German debut, showcasing the American master’s six-decate long body of work.

The Lee Friedlander. Retrospective exhibition offers a complete, chronological overview of his artistic endeavors. Friedlander is known for compiling his work into series, which are expanded and regularly updated over several years. Alongside the projects that produced such highly acclaimed books as The Little Screens (1963), The American Monument (1976) and America by Car (2010), this exhibition features a wide range of portraits, self-portraits, family photographs, nature shots and cityscapes. Over time, his images have acquired an even deeper meaning. They are currently considered some of the most iconic photographs of everyday life in the US, bearing testimony to their ongoing validity as representations of America’s social land-scapes. 35 years after his first exhibition at the US Information Center of the Amerika Haus in Berlin, C/O Berlin is now unveiling 350 photographs and 50 books as well as miscellaneous material providing a variety of insights into Lee Friedlander’s style-defining body of work. This exhibition was curated by Carlos Gollonet, Fundación MAPFRE, in collaboration with Felix Hoffmann, C/O Berlin Foundation.
