This one-day symposium is a collaboration between the National
Galleries of Scotland and the new VARIE Research Forum for German
Visual Culture founded by Dr Christian Weikop at the University of
Edinburgh. It will attempt to address from multiple perspectives the
cultural significance and legacy of August Sander’s hugely ambitious
and methodical photographic analysis of the people of Weimar Germany.

Covering the time from his early contribution to the visual canon of
peasant representation, as seen in his Stamm-Mappe archetypal portraits
of rural types, to his appropriation as a model for photographers
working in the communist East German state, this forum will offer fresh
and exciting insights into the nature of his work and its reception
throughout the turbulent history of the 20th century.

Speakers include:

- Dr Christian Weikop, University of Edinburgh
- Professor Jill Stephenson, University of Edinburgh
- Professor Erica Carter, King’s College London
- Katherine Tubb, PhD candidate, University of Glasgow
- Dr Sabine Kriebel, University College Cork
- Dr Sarah James, University College London
