23.10.22 at 4 PM and 26.11.22 at 6 PM

Jetzt: Magnum Photos explores the various shifts that Magnum Photos, a cooperative of photographers that celebrates its 75th anniversary this year, has recently undergone. Founded in 1947 by Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, George Rodger, and David Seymour so they would no longer be beholden to the agendas of magazine and newspaper editors, Magnum Photos has begun to diversify and to tell more varied stories about the world we live in. It has done so by welcoming a new generation of image makers concerned with documenting multiple experiences and modes of being across continents and countries. It has also found new ways of working and reaching out to audiences interested not only in the cooperative, but also in contemporary issues and their photographic representation.

During these tours, visitors will be given insights into the diversification of Magnum Photos and the various ways in which its photographers are fusing photography with other media.
