In the 1960s, Heide Stolz created a groundbreaking photographic oeuvre in the vicinity of the Munich avant-garde and the Galerie Heiner Friedrich, which - as with many artists of her generation - has only been rediscovered in recent years. In 2020 we can already look forward to the second exhibition of this artist. As part of the Darmstadt Days of Photography, the Kunsthalle Darmstadt in cooperation with the DASMAXIMUM Foundation is presenting an extensive exhibition of her work. "Heath Pride. Affären" was curated by Stefan-Maria Mittendorf and brings together a selection of 62 photographs, including images that are being made available to the public for the first time. With the exhibition 'Heide Stolz. Affaires', the Kunsthalle Darmstadt is making a further important contribution to making this impressive work accessible, which is still touching today and, with its modernity and enlightening force, has lost none of its relevance.
