COLOGNE. From September 10 to December 30, 2016, the Museum Ludwig will be present photographer, illustrator, painter, and for a time even a sculptor Karl Schenker (1886-1954). The Museum recently acquired around 100 portraits and is taking this as an occasion to trace Schenker’s life and work for the first time and to rediscover an unjustly forgotten artist. Around 250 works will be presented, including international loans: photographic portraits of once-famous women and men, fashion and wax figure photographs, magazine covers designed by Schenker, an original drawing, a painting, movie star postcards - even collectible images from cigarette packages. To rediscover Karl Schenker is to rediscover a photographer who transformed his models in his works into the glamorous creatures they wanted to be seen as.

- This exhibition celebrates the visual links between early photography and British art and the role of women photographers.

LONDON. With the exhibition ‘Painting with Light: Art and Photography from the Pre-Raphaelites to the Modern Age’ (until 25 September 2016) Tate Britain (Linbury Galleries) uncovers the dynamic dialogue between British painters and photographers; from the birth of the modern medium to the blossoming of art photography. Spanning over 70 years, the exhibition brings together nearly 200 works - many for the first time - to reveal their mutual influences. From the first explorations of movement and illumination by David Octavius Hill (1802-1870) and Robert Adamson (1821-1848) to artful compositions at the turn-of-the-century, the show discovers how painters and photographers redefined notions of beauty and art itself.

VIENNA. Everything is art. Everything is politics, says Ai Weiwei (born in 1957), one of the world’s most influential contemporary artists. As a conceptual artist, a documentary filmmaker, and an activist, his works exert criticism not only on the regime of his native China, but respond as well to the political reality of Europe’s current refugee crisis, recalls 21er Haus - Museum of Contemporary Art Quartier Belvedere.
