„Diane Arbus (New York, 1923–1971) revolutionized the art she practiced. Her bold subject matter and photographic approach produced a body of work that is often shocking in its purity. Her gift for rendering strange those things we consider most familiar, and for uncovering the familiar within the exotic, enlarges our understanding of ourselves. {…}

The Martin-Gropius-Bau presents a selection of two hundred photographs that afford an opportunity to explore the origins and aspirations in the photography of Diane Arbus. The exhibition shows all of the artist’s iconic photographs as well as many that have never before been publicly exhibited.
The final rooms of the exhibition are devoted to extensive biographical and critical documentation of Diane Arbus‘ life and oeuvre.
The Monograph Revelations (published 2003 by Schirmer Mosel) is available in the Martin-Gropius-Bau.“ (Press release excerpt)
