National Socialism in Images
Photographs influence our view of history. While they appear to be objective, they actually portray events from a particular perspective and with a particular intention. So how should we treat historical photographs? What explanatory power do they have? How were they used and under what circumstances were they taken? And how can these photographs be used as historical sources?
We will look at a selection of photos from the exhibition Munich and National Socialism and analyze how they came to be taken, how they are used, and their visual language. We give you an insight into the power of photographs and how they influence our view of history.
