MICHAEL SCHMIDT Photographs 1965 - 2014
Museo Nacional Centro de Arte
REINA SOFÍA, Madrid, Spain
22 Sep 2021 - 28 Feb 2022
The Museo Reina Sofía welcomes the first Michael Schmidt (Berlin, 1945-2014) retrospective since the photographer's death, curated by Thomas Weski.
Schmidt's work traced the footprints of contemporary society, interleaving snapshots the urban landscape and its inhabitants, in a career that spanned five decades and made him, with Bernd and Hilla Becher, one of the most influential figures of post-war photography in Germany.
