Nobuyoshi Araki – Diane Arbus – Nan Goldin
March 24 – September 26, 1997 | Goetz Collection

"A photograph is the secret of a secret. The more they communicate, the less one knows."
Diane Arbus

With the exhibition Nobuyoshi Araki – Diane Arbus – Nan Goldin, Sammlung Goetz presents three photographers from three generations and cultural worlds. Regardless of societal taboos, they show life as it actually is. Despite their unsparing gaze, the subjects of their photographs maintain their dignity. These photos reveal intimate, touching moments of human interaction.

Diane Arbus is the oldest artist whose works are included in the show. She became known for her black and white portraits from those on the edges of society: the mentally disabled, the poor, prostitutes and transvestites. Nobuyoshi Araki is one of the most renowned Japanese photographers. His nude photos of schoolgirls and artistically bound models triggered great discussion about the boundaries between pornography and art. In her photographs, Nan Goldin takes up subjects like violence, sexuality and death. She uses her camera to accompany people who belong to her circle of friends often for years at a time, almost like a diary.
