BIOGRAPHY

 

Herbert List integrated his classical education and his own lyrical sensibility with the influences of Surrealism and New Objectivity. Influenced by the paintings of Giorgio de Chirico, List began his own project “Fotografia Metafisica” in 1936 soon after he fled Germany. His images of young men and classical antiquity in Greece and Italy from this period have become iconic. At the urging of Robert Capa, he became a contributor to the photography cooperative Magnum through the 1950s. List’s works have been included in a number of important recent group exhibitions; The Encyclopedic Palace, 55th Venice Biennale (2013) and the 8th Gwangju Biennale, 10,000 Lives (2010) both organized by Massimiliano Gioni, as well as Tate Liverpool’s The Uncanny (2004) curated by Mike Kelley.
