Herbert List (1903 – 1975) is one of the most pioneering photographers of the 20th century. The Bucerius Kunst Forum presents the first international comprehensive exhibition of the Hamburg-born photographer in more than twenty years as part of the 8th Triennial of Photography Hamburg 2022. With around 240 original photographs, the exhibition Herbert List. The Magic Eye presents the Magnum photographer's entire range of work from over thirty years as never before.

The retrospective is divided into seven chapters: Hamburg Beginnings, Still Life, Greece, Young Men, Italy, Artists Portraits, and Reportage. It thus spans the arc from List's beginnings in Hamburg, his Surrealist works before 1945, in which he wanted to make the enigmatic and ambiguous aspects of reality visible, to his dreams of a living antiquity in Greece and his male nudes, with which List made a confession of his own homosexuality, to his street scenes in Italy and the portrait photographs of well-known artists: Inside such as Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, Georges Braque, Marlene Dietrich and Ingeborg Bachmann, to the comprehensive pictorial reports of non-European cultures and the documentation of the effects of the Second World War in destroyed Munich.
