The New Photography

Kunsthaus Zürich , Zürich

Upheaval and new beginnings 1970 –1990

This collection presentation focuses on the exploration of new artistic avenues in photography during the 1970s and 1980s, both in Switzerland and internationally. The photography scene was strongly influenced by the general mood of change in contemporary art, where photography came to be used as a pure documentary medium in response to the limited lifespan of performance and conceptual art. On one side were photographers with a practical and commercial training; on the other artistic amateurs.

This exhibition takes some 30 individual works and editions and uses them to set up a fascinating dialogue between those rival approaches. The end-point of the process is innovation, as photography conquers new realms and shapes the aesthetic of new media.
