Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg

The exhibition ReVision. Photography at the MKG presented the first-ever comprehensive survey of the unrivaled photography and new media collection at the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg (MKG). Spanning the period from the dawn of photography to the present, the collection now encompasses ca. 75,000 works.

Divided into five sections, the exhibition examined the collection from a variety of perspectives and highlighted its diversity and heterogeneity. Major classic genres such as portraiture, reportage, and art photography shared the stage with examples of photography’s roles as scientific tool and archival medium.

We developed the exhibition’s graphic design in close collaboration with Studio Miessen, which created the exhibition architecture. An accompanying extensive collection catalogue, also designed by Studio Mahr, was published by Steidl Verlag.
