DAS VERBORGENE MUSEUM - Marianne Strobl

Industrial photographer in Vienna

19 September to 8 March 2019

The legacy left behind by the Viennese photographer Marianne Strobl (1865-1917) proved to be a windfall for historians of photography. Strobl did not want to earn her money in a portrait studio like most of her female colleagues. Instead, between 1894 and 1917, she took her camera out to major construction sites and industrial facilities, and today she ranks as the first woman to pursue industrial photography in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Specializing in this field was Marianne Strobl’s personal strategy for competing in Vienna’s tough photography market around 1900.

The Austrian photographer Marianne Strobl was rediscovered in 2017 for the Photoinstitut Bonartes in Vienna, and an initial exhibition was curated by Dr. Ulrike Matzer. The life and work of this photographer are a sensational find for the history of early industrial photography. With some 60 black-and-white photographs from Austrian collections, together with albums and showcased documents, the exhibition at Das Verborgene Museum in Berlin will introduce this trailblazer from the period around 1900 to an audience outside Vienna.

An exhibition in cooperation with the Photoinstitut Bonartes in Vienna.
