Virtually unknown in her lifetime, Francesca Woodman today belongs to the canon of artistic photography and is recognized, along with Claude Cahun and Cindy Sherman, as one of the strong female voices in photography in the second half of the twentieth century. With On Being an Angel, C/O Berlin presents the first German exhibition of a cross-section of Francesca Woodman's work, from small-format black-and-white and rare color photographs to the late, larger-than-life works created with experimental techniques such as the diazotype. The 102 modern prints selected by the Estate of Francesca Woodman reflect all of the main creative periods in the artist’s short but intense career and are presented at C/O Berlin in dialogue with six short films by the artist.
