Wundercamera: Savannah

Jepson Center February 17–May 14, 2017

Wundercamera: Savannah is a site-specific exhibition bringing together works of art produced by contemporary photographers exploring the world of museums—including museums of natural history, historic houses, and fine and decorative arts institutions. The works in Wundercamera focus on different aspects of the museum and gallery culture as subject matter, all interpreted through the lenses of individual contemporary photographers.

Curated by German-born, London-based photographer Klaus Wehner (aka MuseumClausum), Wundercamera debuted at Pitzhanger Manor Gallery and House in 2014, followed by the Manchester Metropolitan University’s Holden Gallery, both in England. Wundercamera: Savannah will extend the exhibition’s conversation through newly commissioned site-specific photos of Telfair Museums taken by Wehner to be incorporated into the installation.
