The Städel Museum has appointed Kristina Lemke to head up its Collection of Photography from Modernism to the Present. The announcement marks the establishment of a new position at the Städel Museum in Frankfurt, one that will oversee the research and presentation of the museum’s photographic holdings, which currently comprise over 5,000 images. Art historian Kristina Lemke has just completed her PhD and has been working as a research associate at the museum since 2018. "New Ways of Seeing: The Photography of the 1920s and ‘30s", on view from 30 June, will be her first exhibition curated for the museum. Laying the groundwork for the exhibition, a symposium on the photography of the interwar years was held at the museum last year.
