Exploring photographic abstraction in the post-war period, the 'Fotografik: Klein, Ifert, Zamecznik' exhibition at Museum für Gestaltung Zürich, sheds a light on the experimental works of prolific photographers Gérard Ifert, William Klein and Wojciech Zamecznik. Their experiments cleverly play with light in order to illustrate abstract sensations of speed, rhythm and the experience of a crowd, to name a few. These dynamic visuals, inspired by the Bauhaus legacy, dared to intertwine the disciplines of Photography and Graphic Arts, which paved the way for new expressions of 'photo-graphism'. This new style of blurry and kinetic imagery was used in advertising and cultural spheres during this time and went on to influence photographers across the globe.
Originally conceived by the Centre Pompidou, the 'Fotografik' exhibition has been adapted by the Museum für Gestaltung to celebrate the interdisciplinary practice and pioneering style created by the trio of photographers.Dates:
