The Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung was able to engage Ferdinand Brüggemann to present a guided tour with discussion on Thursday, 22 June 2017 within the framework of its program of expert talks. The photographic historian and established connoisseur of Japanese photography will talk about the works by Japanese photographer Rinko Kawauchi on view in our current exhibition lebenswelt | life-world.
Ferdinand Brüggemann (born in Oberhausen, Germany in 1962) studied art history, philosophy, and classical archeology in Regensburg and Bonn. After stations at the Department of Photography at Museum Folkwang in Essen, at the Art and Exhibition Hall of the Federal Republic of Germany in Bonn, and Lehmbruck Museum in Duisburg, he was an honorary fellow for modern Japanese photography and research assistant at the German Institute for Japanese Studies in Tokyo from 1998 to 1999. Since 2000 he heads the department of Japanese Photography at Galerie Priska Pasquer in Cologne. He has curated numerous exhibitions, held lectures, and written articles and catalog contributions on Japanese photography.
Following the guided tour we invite you to visit the exhibition lebenswelt | life-world and join us for a glass of wine in the foundation’s summery garden.
