Hans-Peter Feldmann

Germany (1941)

100 Years


Hans-Peter Feldmann is one of the fathers of photographic reappropriation. Nevertheless, he steps in as a photographer for the 100 Years series, which presents 101 black and white portraits of his parents, friends and acquaintances. Produced between 1997 and 2000, this monumental series retraces all the steps of a human life, at a rate of one portrait per year,starting with an eight-day old baby and ending with a hundred-year old woman. For the visitors, it is a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in the heart of a whole lifespan, which the artist recreates entirely here. Everyone can plunge into their own memories, find their place in the present and project themselves into the future. Thanks to a 50-metre long linear installation, visitors will be able to immerse themselves in this lifeline, set up in the Salle del Castillo.
