On 24 May 2017 an exhibition opens which once again places Hellerau in the centre of interest: STICHPUNKT HELLERAU. It’s the first time that the photographic work by Rudolf Stick, an amateur photographer who lived in Hellerau and portrayed the world of his time, will be shown in public.
The now well-known photographic work of Rudolf Stich includes 198 glass plate negatives 9x12cm, as well as 78 plastic negatives in different formats. In the exhibition, there are 45 photographs to be seen (all apart from two of which are made from glass plates) which are divided into four subject areas:
LIFE - Family and Friends HELLERAU AND DRESDEN WORLD - Travel Photos WAR
The exhibition photos were taken at the time from around the year 1906 to 1920 and thus partly from the founding years of Hellerau. The collection of glass plate and plastic negatives is a subset of Rudolf Stich's photographic oeuvre which has gone to the Deutsche Fotothek for further publication, processing and preservation. The rest of his work is unknown and unfortunately must now be regarded as lost.
The exhibition is the result of the collaboration of photo enthusiasts, the descendants of the photographer, the citizens’ association Bürgerschaft Hellerau e.V., Deutsche Werkstätten, the Deutsche Fotothek and the Förderverein Weltkulturerbe Hellerau e.V. (‘Friends of Hellerau Foundation’).
