The Art Collection Deutsche Börse is among the world’s most renowned collections of contemporary photography. Founded in 1999, the collection is dedicated to photography starting from the mid-20th century and by now comprises more than 2,300 works by around 160 artists from thirty-three countries. The visual languages represented are as diverse as the background, age, or artistic method of the photographers, ranging from documentary to conceptual approaches. Each position offers its own perspective on the central theme of the Art Collection, the conditio humana, the exploration of the conditions of human existence and its localization in the world. »XL Photography 7« presents twenty-two new acquisitions for the Art Collection from recent years, which deal with challenges in politics and society.

Kehrer Verlag and Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation are delighted to welcome some of the contributing artists to a Book Signing at their stand.
