Dietrich Lehmann und der Heidelberger Filmclub der 50er Jahre
In the 1950s the medical student Dietrich Lehmann (1929-2014) did create a series of hand-painted film posters for the student film club at the university of Heidelberg. Hereby, the impressive effect this film club had did reach out way beyond Heidelberg into post-war Federal Germany. The catalogue, which accompanies the eponymous exhibition at the University Museum in Heidelberg, contextualises Lehmann’s posters within the history and the development of the genre of the film poster and discusses in articles as well as in the individual entries the history of the Heidelberg film club as well as that of the German film clubs in general. Moreover, the national as well as local history of film and the personality of Dietrich Lehmann are examined.
