Horst H. Baumann Archive - Colour Vision, Colour Grading and the Art of Archiving

The photographer and later laser artist Horst H. Baumann understood and used the creative power of colour photography in Germany like no other. His cult book "Die Matadore" (The Matadors) was published in 1965, and his photographic work is now being exhibited at ZEPHYR in Mannheim.

Christoph Wieland has scientifically researched the Baumann estate. In conversation with Corinna Weidner, he talks about the magic of colour photography and learning to see colours in the 1950s and in times of colour grading on smartphones.

How does archival science affect the Baumann Archive, why are gaps in the archive a source of knowledge, how can conflicting interests be united in archives and why do archives develop their power in networking? This podcast provides the answers.
