Until her recent re-discovery, Marta Astfalk-Vietz was almost completely unknown, even in her native Germany, but is now recognised as an artist of extraordinary diversity and originality, with much to say to contemporary audiences. This lecture will explore the achievement of an artist immersed in the bohemian underground culture of Berlin during the Weimar Republic, and whose work ranges from fashion plates and self-portraiture to her innovative Dadaesque ‘Combi Pictures.'
Katherine Tubb is a graduate of the University of Glasgow and is currently completing her doctoral thesis on the work of Marta Astfalck-Vietz.
This lecture is organised in collaboration with the Scottish Society for the History of Photography.
All are welcome to attend.
