22 June – 20 September
Opening: Sunday, 21 June 2015, 11.15 am
Due to the unexpected death of Sascha Weidner in April 2015, the exhibition of his new production could not be completed as originally planned. In memory of this young and extremely talented artist the Marta Hoepffner-Gesellschaft für Fotografie e. V. in the Stadtmuseum Hofheim am Taunus will show two of his latest series “Traveling Through China” and “Palmen” as well as the earlier photo series “Beauty remains” from the collection of the DZ BANK Kunstsammlung.
The Marta Hoepffner-Gesellschaft für Fotografie e.V. was founded on May 23, 2001 in the Stadtmuseum Hofheim am Taunus. The Society is committed to the photographer Marta Hoepffner (1912-2000), who lived and worked in Hofheim between 1944 and 1970. Since its foundation, the Marta Hoepffner-Gesellschaft für Fotografie e.V. has arranged tours and lectures in the Stadtmuseum Hofheim and every three years awards the Marta Hoepffner Prize for photography in combination with an exhibit and catalogue.
