Exhibition : « THE PSYCHIC LENS - Surrealism and the camera » at the Atlas Gallery Press Release - A new exhibition of nearly 50 works at Atlas Gallery will explore how photographers responded to Surrealism over the course of over 50 years. The Psychic Lens: Surrealism and the camera, will include vintage photographs by well-known figures such as Man Ray, Andre Kertesz, Florence Henri and Bill Brandt alongside rarely seen works by artists such as Vaclav Zykmund, Franz Roh and Raoul Hausmann to tell the story of Surrealism through photography.
Surrealism was an avant-garde movement in art and literature beginning in the 1920s when artists began to experiment with ways of unleashing the subconscious imagination. Poet Andre Breton is credited with launching the movement in Paris in 1924. Over time the influence of the movement spread far and wide, as evidenced in the inclusion of collages by Japanese a...
Atlas Gallery presents « Ancient and Modern » by Floris Neusüss
Following the hugely successful exhibition “Shadow Catchers” at the Victoria and Albert Museum in Autumn 2010, the ATLAS Gallery is pleased to announce a follow-up exhibition of work by the acclaimed German photogram artist, featuring both old and new work. Included are works from the celebrated Aegineten photogram series, which depict life-size ancient Greek statues from the Glyptothek Museum in Munich, along with newly released photogramic nudes and the hugely influential Tellerbilder or “Plate” series from the 1970’s, which, in more recent years inspired younger photogram artists such as Adam Fuss and Gary Fabian Miller. One highlight will be a new work depicting a dinner table laden with the detritus of a long and messy meal, photographically printed onto linen.
Collective Exhibition « Portraits of the photographer » in Berlin
ANITA NEUGEBAUER – photo art basel.
Portrait of the Photographer, Gallery Owner and Collector

Floris Neusüss expose « Dream Images » au Münchner Stadtmuseum
Since the late 1950s, Floris Neusüss (born 1937 in Lennep) has explored photography’s potential beyond its simple portrayal of the world around us. His photos achieve their impact thanks to the tension between the candor of the camera and the potential for surrealist interpretation. Neusüss blends keen consciousness of the technical and historical constraints of photography with a lyrical, even a dreamlike, eye.
Past exhibitions and earlier publications have considered Neusüss's artistic achievement to be the testing and development of the photogram, camera-less photography that was on show most recently at the "Shadow Catchers" exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London in 2010. The general public generally associates Neusüss with the life size nudes he produ...

Photograms are created b...
