Welcome TO AN ARTIST TALK ABOUT NUDITY & HELMUT NEWTON WITH LARS SCHWANDER AT THE MUSEUM

Perhaps the nude studies, as a genre, today can be considered old-fashioned and ineffective (in sexual terms). For example, in relation to the development of the free spirit; the fact that nudity has become natural, the liberalization of nudity, porn, the entry of video into the media image, etc. And isn’t clothing even more interesting as an erotic tool than the completely undressed body?

When it comes to Helmut Newton, he probably cultivated the naked body, but to an even greater extent the clothing, the clothes, its fetish. And the nudity, he often combined with unorthodox situations. But who was Helmut Newton: what is myth and what is reality? This is of course a difficult question to answer. However, a relatively confidential relationship developed between Helmut Newton and I, which, among other things, resulted in the offer to write his memoirs.

WHO IS LARS SCHWANDER?
Lars Schwander is BA Copenhagen University, photographer, writer, composer and collector. He is an expert in photography and already in the 1980s involved in the start-up of the Museum of Photography (Brandts, Odense), he worked as a subject specialist at the Photographic Department at the Royal Library (Copenhagen) and founded Fotografisk Center (Copenhagen), as well as being its director the first 15 years, when a large number of the world’s leading photographers visited the gallery. In parallel, Lars Schwander worked at Louisiana MoMA and organized a number of photographic exhibitions with Magnum Agency, Henri Cartier-Bresson, William Eggleston, and not least Arnold Newman, who became a very close friend. The biography of Newman is scheduled to be published in 2024. Lars Schwander has also been an advisor for the Hasselblad Foundation (Gothenburg) and has been on the jury for the ”Hasselblad Award” (Gothenburg), Prix BMW (Paris) etc. For 30 years he has been a close friend and collaborator with the concept artist Yoko Ono.

And finally, Lars Schwander is a photographer himself and has exhibited in Denmark and abroad. He does mainly portraits of artists and friends. In this way it’s Lars, who did the portrait of Helmut Newton (top image) at the entrance to the exhibition at Falsterbo Photo Museum.
