FOTO – Modernity in Central Europe, 1918 – 1945

Don’t miss this wonderful show at the Guggenheim Museum in New York. This show includes examples of many seminal experiments in modern photography.

“The story of photography’s phenomenal success in Germany, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Poland, and Austria during a time of tremendous social and political upheaval is presented in the first survey ever done on this subject. Drawn from several dozen American and international collections, this exhibition is unprecedented in its scope with approximately 150 photographs, books, and illustrated magazines that explore such topics as photomontage and war, gender identity, life and leisure in the modern metropolis, and the spread of surrealism. Recognized masters such as László Moholy-Nagy and Hannah Höch are included with about 100 lesser-known but historically important contemporaries, such as Karel Teige, Kazimierz Podsadecki, Károly Escher, and Trude Fleischmann.”

On view from October 12, 2007 through January 15, 2008 at 1071 Fifth Avenue (at 89th Street)
