Gerti Deutsch and Inge Morath in dialogue in an exhibition on the image of women
16 September − 17 October 2021
Yaroslavska, 21, 04071, Kyiv, Ukraine
An exhibition in which two women photographers present carefully composed and sympathetically shot images of women from the 1940-1960s. One image from each photographer is put together in a fictional dialogue about the form and content of the photograph.
Gerti Deutsch (1908-1979) and Inge Morath (1923-2002) are separated by a generation, but they have many things in common: born in Austria, international careers in the field of photojournalism, they had to assert themselves as women in a male-dominated profession, and they have always been interested in the role of women in society.
The works of both artists are in the FOTOHOF archiv and a reportage from 1951, photographed together, is the starting point for the fictional dialogue between the two photographers in the exhibition "Woman to Woman".
The exhibition at the Dymchuk Gallery in Kiev is the prelude to an exhibition tour through Ukraine. Further stops are Dnipro (Oct./Nov. 2021), Odessa (2022) and as a conclusion Lviv / Lemberg in May 2022.
