Photographics: Klein, Ifert, Zamecznik

01 Nov - 09 Feb 2020 / Museum für Gestaltung Zürich, CH

Light drawing, photograms, photomontages: the search for a contemporary visual idiom for the postwar period inspired artists and designers to experiment with photography. From 1950, William Klein created photograms, decisively influenced by the Bauhaus legacy and by contemporary gestural abstraction and kinetics. Gérard Ifert made his first movement studies, and Wojciech Zamecznik experimented with light painting shortly afterwards.
