Opening today at Berlin’s world renowned Bauhaus Archive “Andreas Feininger – New York in the Forties,” an exhibition which includes many of the artists own favorite shots. Having given his main body of work to the CCP in Tucson Arizona, Feininger held those few personal favorites back and finally gave them to the later founded Andreas Feininger Archive in Tübingen. Now they are on display in Berlin.
Hidden in the cellar of the largest library of the world a treasure was buried. A glut of color, monochrome and black-and-white photos was stashed away, unsorted and barely cataloged.
