In his twenties, Claus Bach, a photography artist who was born and grew up in the German Democratic Republic, formed an artists group with his high school friends Thomas Günther and Sabine Jahn. Working collaboratively for over a decade, the group produced creative inter-media works combining Bach’s photography with Günther’s poetry and Jahn’s prints. Examples of their collaborations are in the collections of the Wende Museum and the Getty Research Institute. Bach will be interviewed by Isotta Poggi, Associate Curator of Photographs at the GRI.
