The Family of Manis one of the most famous photo exhibitions of all times. Since 1994, the last remaining original is exhibited publicly in Luxemburg. Whereas scholars have dismissed The Family of Manfor decades as senti-mental and stereotypical, teachers embraced it early on for its potential to in-struct visual literacy. This article presents a set of three courses about The Fam-ily of Man, including a seminar, a practical tutorial, and an excursion to the exhibition in Clervaux, Luxemburg. It argues that The Family of Manisnowadays still important for teaching visual literacy at the intersection of photo history, photo theory, and exhibition design.
