Invitation card (G)

The current exhibition curated by Benjamin Ochse features zoo photographs taken almost 35 years apart from the two photographers Sabine Wild (*1962), with her series ‘Territories’, and Hildegard Ochse (1935–1997), with her ‘Gastland Bundesrepublik Deutschland’ (Host Country: Federal Republic of Germany).
In her extensive series (1983-1984), Hildegard Ochse shows over one hundred different pictures of creatures in the cages, enclosures, and showcases of European zoo architecture. Photographer Sabine Wild, who has been working on the subject of zoo archi- tecture since 2007, uncovers the aesthetic concepts behind the apparently functional elements of keeping animals in zoos.


As soon as possible, we will offer guided tours for small groups. Dates can be found on here.
