cost: €4; concessions €2
time: Tue-Sun 10am-6pm (until 9pm Wed)
Frankfurt's Historical Museum hosts the first exhibition of Abisag Tullmann's photography since her death in 1992. This collection of over 400 images, as well as political essays, captures Frankfurt's turbulent spirit during the 1960s and 1970s.
Tullmann's photojournalistic style records student protests, street fights and racial prejudice, as well as developments in German theatre during the post-war years. Equally, her work pays homage to the everyday lives of ordinary Frankfurters, with tender personal portraits of workers, housewives, immigrants, and the homeless.
The exhibition is also an opportunity to read Tullmann's political commentary on the Israeli-Palestine conflict and anti-colonial movements in Africa.
