Dennis Hopper – The Lost Album

Vintage Photographs of the 1960s
Organizer Berliner Festspiele. An exhibition of the Martin-Gropius-Bau in association with the Dennis Hopper Trust.

Curator Petra Giloy-Hirtz
The exhibition shows a spectacular portfolio of over four hundred vintage photographs taken by Dennis Hopper (1936-2010) in the 1960s. Tucked away in five crates and forgotten, they were discovered after his death. There can be no doubt that these works are those personally selected by Hopper from the wealth of shots he took between 1961 and 1967 for the first major exhibition of his photography. The pictures themselves document how the works were installed in the Fort Worth Art Center Museum, Texas, in 1969 by himself and Henry T. Hopkins, the museum’s director at the time. None of these works have been displayed in Europe before.
