Homage Anita Neugebauer
Anita Neugebauer (1916 – 2012) founded her gallery “photo art basel” 1976 – and was one of the first if not the first art gallery with the sole focus on fine art photography. Not only was she the meeting point for collectors and enthusiasts, but she also became a pioneer and advocate beyond the Swiss boarders. Her own collection, centers around her childhood friend, Gisèle Freund’s oeuvre whom she met while her family immigrated from Nazi Germany to Argentina.
photo basel is paying homage to the one and only, Anita Neugebauer and her gallery.
Anita’s point of vier is curated by her daughter, Claudia Neugebauer and Alessa Widmer.
