The exhibition shows that, in the wake of the highly formal serialism of the Düsseldorf generation, new German photography is defined by the diversity of its style and interests.

Curator Thomas Weski was also curator of the survey of Thomas Gursky recently seen at the National Gallery of Victoria.
