COLOGNE-ON-RHINE: A journey through time

August 24, 2019 to December 15, 2019

In 1947 the young photographer Karl Hugo Schmölz (*1917) documented this ravaged city of the post-war era. In his photographs he followed the model of the images of Cologne that his father, Hugo Schmölz (*1879), had taken in the 1920s and 30s and photographed squares, buildings and streets from the same angle. Images from the years 1994 and 2018 complement these photos to create a vivid and forceful portrait of the city.

COLOGNE-ON-SEINE: The Pavilion of the City of Cologne at the Paris World Exhibition of 1937

August 24, 2019 to December 15, 2019

Paris in summer 1937: For the last time, countries come together for a seemingly peaceful rendezvous at the World Exhibition. Cologne was the only city worldwide to set up its own pavilion. 19-year-old Cologne photographer Karl Hugo Schmölz documented the World Exhibition and the contribution of Cologne in brilliant photographs. This document of an exciting episode in the Franco-German relationship gives visitors an impressive panorama of the important year 1937.
