Foto und Film – Die Technik der Bilder

In the organizer's words:

The exhibition shows how the interrelationship between technology and image result has shaped photography since its beginnings in the 1830s and later filming. The focus is on the historical development of equipment and reproduction media in a large display case that extends through the entire exhibition space. More than 500 objects present 200 years of photography and film history - from the camera obscura and Le Daguerreotype to standard film cameras and daylight enlargers, beamers, scanners and digital SLR cameras. There are also themed islands on digital technology, color, space, time, the fast and indiscreet image and sound film. The basics, components and functions of camera technology are explained in the third area. Finally, two selected image processes are presented in the gallery of images: Laterna magica discs as the forerunner of slide projection on the one hand and the autochrome as one of the first color photography processes on the other.
