| What sort of role did photography and film play in the work of Edvard Munch?
Edvard Munch: Der moderne Blick is the first book to focus on the artist’s interest in the modern representational techniques of his time, such as photography, film, illustrated magazines, and stage design. Based on sixty paintings and twenty works on paper by Edvard Munch (1863–1944), the publication proves how his paintings took on specific structural and narrative forms, poses, and even effects used in photography and film. In addition, one chapter is devoted to Munch’s own experiments with photography and moving pictures and features fifty prints of his own photographs and four films. The volume furthermore demonstrates how Munch worked on one and the same subject in drawings, photography, painting, prints, and even sculpture. His frequent use of the same motifs is an important key to understanding his work. Exhibition schedule: Centre Pompidou, Paris, September 22, 2011–January 23, 2012 | Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt, February 9–May 13, 2012  |Tate Modern, London, June 28–October 12, 2012
