The exhibition Time Present with works from the Deutsche Bank Collection at the PalaisPopulaire, is devoted to international photography from the 1970s to the present. The show examines how artists deal with time and the basic questions of photography: What different levels of reality and time does a photograph capture? Does it actually depict a certain moment? Is what is seen in a photograph present or past, reality or imagination? The link between time and contemporary events provides the framework for examining the history of the Deutsche Bank Collection from various perspectives. The spectrum of the exhibition ranges from ›classics‹ of contemporary German photography, including Bernd and Hilla Becher, Andreas Gursky, and Candida Höfer to young photographic art from Africa, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and China, which today is helping to shape the collection.
