Joseph Beuys' first museum exhibition outside the German-speaking area took place in January 1971 at the Moderna Museet in Stockholm. Lothar Wolleh accompanied Beuys on his journey and photographed the structure of this exhibition. These photographs formed the basis for an artist book by both artists, which eventually became famous under the title Unterwasserbuch.

The exhibition ‘Joseph Beuys and Lothar Wolleh: The Unterwasserbuch-Project’ presents photographs, vintage prints on PVC and an installation under the same title.

The exhibition also celebrates the publication of a cassette with a new edition of the artist's book from 1972 and an essay volume with the latest research by Antoon Melissen (The Unterwasserbuch-Project Kerber Verlag, May 2021).

The photographs of the limited special edition on the occasion of the 100th birthday of Joseph Beuys are available in Lothar Wolleh Raum.

Lothar Wolleh Raum is dedicated to the work of the photographer Lothar Wolleh (Berlin 1930 - London 1979).
