Additional Information

Keramiktasse is, as its title states, Biermann’s photograph of a ceramic cup. Taken from above the arrangement, it shows ceramic crockery laid out on a table. The techniques used –cropping and photographing objects from a distinctive angle – are characteristic of the ‘New Objectivity’ photography of the 1920s that Biermann was a major proponent of.

Aenne Biermann (1898 – 1933), was a German photographer of Ashkenazi origin. A self-taught photographer, she became one of the major proponents of New Objectivity, a significant art movement that developed in the Weimar Republic, Germany in the 1920s. The majority of Biermann's photographs were shot between 1925 and her death in 1933, with her work becoming internationally renowned in the late 1920s, when it was part of every major exhibition of German photography. In honour of her important contribution to photography, the Aenne Biermann Prize for Contemporary German Photography was created in 1992, an annual award and one of the most important events of its kind in Germany. Several of her works are held in Tate’s collection.
