The Rhine—sixty photographic positions between testimony and myth

Since the beginning of pictorial production, the Rhine, Europe's most celebrates river, has been the subject of numerous paintings, drawings, and engravings. By and large, these images of the Rhine create and model collective notions that influence our perception of the river to this very day, alternating between testimony and myth, between cliché and art.

The exhibition and catalogue explores the ambivalent correlation between river and image based on photography, this modern technical process that occupies in a special field of tension between reality and imagination. More than sixty renowned photographers, primarily from the countries adjacent to the Rhine—Germany, France, Switzerland, and the Netherlands—present a spectrum of photographic positions that range from documentary and photojournalistic to artistic.
