Blow-Up

Antonioni's Film Classic and Photography / Antonionis Filmklassiker und die Fotografie

13 Sep – 30 Nov 2014


The cult film "Blow-Up" by Michelangelo Antonioni (1966) occupies a central position in the history of film as well as that of art and photography. No other film has shown and sounded out the diverse areas of photography in such a differentiated way. The photographic range of ’Blow-Up’ is highly diversified and ranges from fashion photography and social reportage to abstract photography. Film stills are shown next to works that can actually be seen in ‘Blow-Up&rsquo… more

Manifesto!

Manifesto!

An Alternative History of Photography

13 Sep – 23 Nov 2014




Manifesto! An Alternative History of Photography is the first exhibition to explore the historical relationship between photography and the manifesto. Comprising 56 statements written by photographers covering the whole history of photography from the 1840s to the present day, it assembles those who have something urgent to say about the medium. The result is an engaging cacophony of voices, often programmatic, sometimes angry, but always hopeful.

The manifesto is a modernist mode par exce… more

The Place We Live

The Place We Live

A Retrospective Selection of Photographs

7 Jun – 31 Aug 2014
Robert Adams (* 1937) is the foremost living landscape photographer of the American West. He is best known for his austere, nuanced photographs of suburban development in Colorado during the late 1960s, images that first came to prominence through his seminal book The New West published in 1974. He was a key contributor to the landmark exhibition New Topographics: Photographs of a Man-Altered Landscape, organized by the International Museum of Photography and Film, Rochester, New York in 1975.

How does our secular society manage its heritage and, with that, its future? By collecting and archiving data with near-religious zeal: human DNA in the form of slivers of umbilical cord, dental samples and sperm, DNA of animals already extinct in the wild, the seeds of all manner of (agricultural) plants. And, of course, vast quantities of digital data that we leave behind on the big data pathways of the internet, credit card statements and official registers.

From 2009 to 2013, Swiss photo… more

SAMMLUNGSAUSSTELLUNG - Set 10

8 Mar – 24 Aug 2014



One characteristic of contemporary photography is its confrontation with surfaces and the investigation of their apparent veneer and impenetrability. Swiss photography classes at the Zurich University of the Arts, ECAL in Lausanne, and HEAD in Geneva have trained a number of artists over the years, who in addition to exploring issues of content have primarily addressed issues specific to the medium. Has photography evolved through the digital turn? How does our relationship to the exhibited o… more

James Welling (*1951) operates in the hybrid ground between painting, sculpture, and traditional photography. For over 40 years he has explored issues of presentation and abstraction in his work, and is equally esteemed by critics, artists, and collectors as a central figure of international contemporary photography. The exhibition Autograph presents Welling’s documentary-style photographs in the tradition of classical art photography, as exemplified by Paul Strand. In addition, the exhi… more

Scientific images are fascinating because they show things and processes that remain hidden to the human eye. Photography makes it possible to delve ever deeper into micro- or macrocosms and capture them in images. Is photography mainly a visual research-aid for science or is it much more? Developing scientific practices have continued to place new demands on the capacities of the medium since the invention of photography in the 1830s, and have led to a continuous fine-tuning of the photographic… more

8 Jun – 25 Aug 2013
The work of American photographer and sociologist Lewis Hine (1874–1940) called for a better world. Hine was adamant in his wish that Americans become aware of the injustice in their nation’s legal system. A firm believer that every human being deserved full respect, Hine saw photography as the best tool to make this both visible and compelling. To fulfill his mission, Lewis Hine traveled 75,000 km throughout the United States for organizations such as the National Child Labor Commit… more

2 Mar – 20 May 2013
Architectures and cities are both volumes and images alike. We experience them directly, physically and sensually, as well as through pictures. Pictures speak a language of their own. They offer a discourse that is quite unlike the physical experience of architecture. They transform volume into surface; distil matter into forms and signs – rarely, if ever, leaving it as it is. That is probably why so many architects try to get involved in determining the image of their buildings. The class… more

It is, strictly speaking, a documentary photograph, and yet, at the same time, it appears to symbolise the tension between two civilisations, raising the question of how indigenous culture can continue to survive within western culture. Graciela Iturbide often creates i… more

The Roma Journeys

Roma, Sinti, Calé, and other groups, often collectively referred to as Gypsies, form Europe's largest ethnic minority. They are scattered far and wideóeach group in its particular situation, with its own language and culture. During the course of history, Roma in Europe have been persecuted, expelled, and even enslaved. Many Roma today still have to contend with discrimination and are met with mistrust by certain population groups.

Between 2000 and 2006, photographer Joakim… more

So Blue, So Blue - Edges of the Mediterranean

28 Feb – 17 May 2009
So Blue, So Blue - Edges of the Mediterranean is the title of a major work by Dutch photographer Ad van Denderen (*1943), exploring the seventeen countries that fringe the Mediterranean. In recent years, this region has become the playground of the wealthy industrialized world. Yet this one-sided view of its azure waters, sandy beaches and tourist resorts ignores the social, economic and political changes that have been wrought by globalization. With So Blue, So Blue, Ad van Denderen seeks to gi… more

WALTER PFEIFFER - In Love With Beauty

An underground classic for years, Walter Pfeiffer has developed a unique blend of eroticism and wit, classical serenity and ornamental playfulness, artifice and immediacy that has begun to garner major international attention in the past few years. Fotomuseum Winterthur presents an unprecedented chronological overview of Pfeiffer’s photographic work, spanning four decades from his beginnings in the early 1970s to his most recent work.

The list of artists reads like a "Who's Who" of contemporary art and photography. The main part of the collection is focused on the conceptual photography of the 1960s and 70s, with works by Vito Acconci, John Baldessari, Bernd & Hilla Becher, Victor Burgin, Hamish Fulton, Michael Heizer, Richard Long, Gordon Matta-Clark, Sol LeW… more

7 Jun – 24 Aug 2008
A pitch, two goals, 22 players, open meadows or rough ground, with only a handful of spectators: for more than ten years, Dutch photographer Hans van der Meer visited the playing fields of Europe, photographing football in its most elementary form as it is played weekend upon weekend in the lower league clubs of the villages and suburbs, occupying the minds and the feet of the players and their wives for more than a hundred years. These subtle images of men pursuing an activity as absurd as it i… more

1 Mar – 25 May 2008
Eugène Atget (1857-1927) is one of the greatest photographers of the 20th century. He became famous primarily through his views of the "old Paris", which were coveted by collectors even during his lifetime, and which served numerous painters as sample prints for their work. For a long time known only to a small circle of historians, artists and museum curators, Atget worked tirelessly at capturing with his camera the part of old Paris that was in the process of disappearing: monuments, pictures… more

The Visual Inventiveness of Photographic Postcards

Press photography, photo books, photographic objects, photographic postcards: the way we look at these many different forms of photography is undergoing a sea change.

From 1900 onwards, picture postcards enjoyed enormous popularity. In addition to urba… more

Die neue Fotografie in Italien 1932-1960

1 Sep – 18 Nov 2007
Neorealism, mainly associated with the films by Visconti, De Sica and Rossellini, was a heartfelt artistic response to the transformation of Italy in the course of the twentieth century. With the demise of Fascism, which had harnessed the mass media of photography and film for its own purposes and moulded a new aesthetic of reality, Neorealism surged to the fore. The newfound freedom of opinion and the need to forge a new Italian identity fuelled a feverish interest in documenting reality and ex… more

Set 4 from the Collection of the Fotomuseum Winterthur

For several decades, women were virtually compelled to occupy themselves primarily with themes relating to their own situation in art and the world, and thus to create a (feminist) expression in contemporary art. This was the only way, through intensive self-reflection and power analysis, that they stood a chance of being noticed. This is why the women's art of the past 30 to 40 years is so intensively bound up with the c… more

"Skin of the Nation" focuses on the surfaces, faces, clothes and territories that, like a map, provide information about Japan's mood and sensitivities. Shomei Tomatsu, who was born in 1930 and grew up during the military regime in World War II, belongs to the "faithless" generation, as he himself has formulated it – to the generation that experienced the shock of Japan's change from a closed into an open society. His first photographs taken in the 1950s were dedicated to poverty-stricken life… more

There is a good deal of talk nowadays of a crisis in reportage photography connected with the loss of subjective, personal photographic series in magazines and the dominance of the speedier information provided by television. This forces narrative, in-depth documentary photography to look for new avenues with which to forestall the loss of authorship with new, different media and sponsors. In recent years, a conspicuo… more

Erich Salomon (1886-1944) is incontestably one of the most important photographers of the 20th century. During his lifetime, the doctor of law and polyglot gentleman who was accepted by great personalities from the fields of politics, culture and society as one of themselves, was exceptionally successful as a photojournalist. In 1928, the son of an upper class Jewish Berlin family became famous overnight as a star reporter of the firm Ullstein when his first, secretly taken court reportages beca… more
