Ulrich Pohlmann on Pohlmann and Schmoll gen. Eisenwerth. Photography Collection at the Munich City Museum
In part 2 of the conversation with the head of the Photography Collection at the Munich City Museum, Ulrich Pohlmann talks about his farewell to the Fotomuseum and sums up 30 years of his work.
The photo museum as a bastion against the flood of images, the relevance of a comprehensive view of the medium of photography, photography's close connection to art, its fundamental function of memory and the breathlessness of working at a photo museum.
Ulrich Pohlmanns also reports on where, from his point of view, the journey for photography in Munich and at the Stadtmuseum can go, and what connects him with the art historian Schmoll gen. Eisenwerth.
Part 1 of the podcast: Ulrich Pohlmann on the central transformation of the institution from the 1970s under his predecessor Ditmar Albert (GDL).
