Robert Lebeck: 1968


This book presents various series that German photojournalist Robert Lebeck (1929–2014) made in 1968, which together form an alternative view of the year in which social conflict and personal rebellion found passionate, often violent expression. Lebeck’s photos, taken in locations from New York to Bogotá and Wolfsburg, depict Rudi Dutschke in Prague; Robert Kennedy’s funeral; Joseph Beuys at Documenta; and the pope’s visit to Bogotá.” Made on behalf of Stern, then one of Germany’s highest-circulation magazines, the images presented in this book reveal how Lebeck captured the cultural shifts of the time.
