Leni Riefenstahl



Leni Riefenstahl (Germany, 1902 – 2003)

Leni Riefenstahl started her career in the Twenties as a dancer and as an actress. In the thirties she was on the other side of the camera as a director. She was a very controversial person, mainly because of her personal relationship with Adolf Hitler and her propaganda films for the Nazist regime.

As a director she was very important and developed a very strong and poetical language. Her outspoken artistic talents combined with her assignments for the Nazis make her even more controversial.

In 1936 she made her most important film “Olympia”, on the Olympic Games in Berlin.

In the exhibition there are no photos by Riefenstahl for the simple reason that she never photographed herself. Most photographs were made by Rolf Lantin for Ufa.

After the Second World Ware she made nature films and an impressive photo book on the Nuba.
