Galerie Thomas Zander will display works of Lewis Baltz, a representative of classical American photography, and also has conceptual photographic artists including Peter Downsborough and Victor Burgin in its programme. Don Dudley's multi-part wall installation "Rail" from 1977 is sure to draw attention.
