Exhibition : «Czech fundamental » at Museo di Roma in TrastevereThe exhibition Czech Fundamental is organized by gallery Photo Edition Berlin in collaboration with Museo di Roma in Trastevere and Centro Sperimentale di Fotografia, Rome. The exhibit engages the viewer in a dialogue between old and new - Czech photography from the very beginnings of the avant-garde in the 1920s, to a broad selection of contemporary artists whose works exhibit an individual, authorial or experimental approach to the medium. Featured are photographs fundamental to the development of a specifically Czech vision - Frantisek Drtikol's nudes, Jaroslav Rossler's and Jaromir Funke's contemplative compositions, surreal arrangements by Vaclav Zykmund and Josef Sudek's poetic still-lifes. The exhibition presents Constructivism, Surrealism and New Objectivity from 1920 - 1945. The second section pr...

Is a photograph a true-to-life reproduction of reality, or is it merely a staged image? This year – the 175th anniversary of the invention of photography – the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg responds to this question with a comprehensive survey of avant-garde photography between 1920 and 1950. The exhibition RealSurreal presents around 200 masterpieces from the eminent Siegert Collection in Munich. This collection, which has never been shown in its entirety, contains photographs from the Neues Sehen (‘New Vision&rs...
Czech Photography of the 20th Century - Art and Exhibition Hall of the Federal Republic of GermanyFrom Surrealism and other avant-garde experimentation to realism and classic photo reportage, Czech photographers have long played a key role in all areas of photography and continue to do so to this day.
This exhibition is the first in Germany to present the history and development of Czech photography from 1900 to the turn of the millennium. Beginning with Art Nouveau-inspired pictorialism, the comprehensive survey traces the rise of avant-garde photography and the development of photo montage in the 1920s to the 1940s. It examines the influence of ideological pressure on photography during the Second World War, the Stalinist 1950s and the period of Communist 'normalisation' after the occupation in 1968 and introduces the visitor to the multifaceted range of contemporary trends.
With more than 440 photographs alo...
Czech Photography of the 20th CenturyThe exhibition was prepared in cooperation with the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague.
Czech photography produced and produces leading figures in all areas of photography - from classical documentary photojournalism to surrealism, realism or avant-garde works. From 13 March 2009 on, the Art and Exhibition Hall of the Federal Republic of Germany is presenting over 440 photographic works, a historical mosaic of Czech photography from 1900 until the late 20th century that underlines the international reputation enjoyed by Czech photography today. That reputation is not only apparent in the outstanding contributions by such renowned artists as Josef Sudek, Karel Hájek, Václav Jírů, Vilém Reichmann, Jan Reich, Jindřich Streit, František Drtikol, Jaromír Funke, Jaroslav R&...
Jaroslav Rössler Eugen Wiskovsky Jaromir FunkeKOWASA gallery opens the season 2008-2009 with an exhibition that pays tribute to Jaroslav Rössler, Eugen Wiskovský and Jaromír Funke, three of the most distinguished members of the Czech Avant-garde (1920-1960). Four portfolios edited by the Prague House of Photography provide a recollection of the most significant moments in the trajectory of the three photographers.
The photographic genius of Jaroslav Rössler (1902-1990) was rescued from oblivion in the late sixties when his astoundingly early contribution to the history of Czech photography and the panorama of the international avant-garde finally became acknowledged. Forty years earlier, in the twenties, Rössler had been one of the first photographers in contact with the Czech Modernity. But Rössler had also been a key figure in ...
