  • Lothar Baumgarten

    Artist

    Lothar Baumgarten (1944-) is a German artist born in Rheinsberg, Germany who lives and works in Berlin and New York. Working primarily in photography, film, and installation, Baumgarten’s “primary subject is the legacy of the historical encounter between the colonizers of the Americas and the indigenous peoples who inhabited the continent before them.” In 1989, however, Baumgarten “turned his attention to the vast continental railway system of the United States that enabled the settlement of the West.”[1] This attention resulted in the photographic book Carbon, and the gelatin silver print included in today’s show. Baumgarten’s Track Structure Texas & Pacific El Paso, Bassetts Mill Ave. Railroad Yard (1989) is in the Collection of John O’Brian. Baumgarten’s work can also be found in the permanent collections of institutions such as the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto, the Tate Modern, London, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, the National Museum of Art, Washington D.C., and the National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto. (2018)
