28 October 2021. Web Forum with Dr. Anat Gilboa „The Legacy of Helmar Lerski”
“The Legacy of Helmar Lerski” “Faces” was the title of an outstanding exhibition of photography at the beginning of the year at the Albertina in Vienna. The artworks of Helmar Lerski (1871-1956), a path breaking avant-gardist in modern photography at the beginning of the 20th century, formed the main part of this exhibition. Lerski’s extraordinarily innovative attitude towards photography of human images as well as his connection to Mandatory Palestine brought a stunning artist to broader public notice. His life as a Zionist and pioneer of modern photography has been illustrated from an interdisciplinary angle.
