Archive talk with Thomas Florschuetz

In this video (only in German), the author and curator Maren Lübbke-Tidow talks to the artist Thomas Florschuetz. Florschuetz explains about his first meeting with Michael Schmidt in East Berlin during GDR times, about parallels in his own and Schmidt’s work and the fascination of the “Waffenruhe” group of works. He explains why the series “Frauen” is closest to him and what influence it might have had on fashion photography at the time.
