Opening Hours: Sundays 2-5 pm
Born in Triptis, Alfred Ehrhardt (1901-1984) was one of the few Bauhaus students who earned his living exclusively as a filmmaker and photographer. In 1948, with the support of the British occupation authorities, he founded his own cultural film production company in Hamburg. His first post-war works include a film about the Bordesholm Altar in Schleswig and a two-part cultural film about the life and work of the German sculptor, draughtsman and writer Ernst Barlach (1870-1938). At the time, Ehrhardt was regarded as the “most important German post-war cultural film creator”.
