Concrete – Photography and Architecture.

Exhibition. Fotomuseum Winterthur. Fotostiftung Schweiz. [Winterthur (Zurich)] Switzerland 02/03 - 20/05/2013
metalocus, JOSÉ JUAN BARBA
With "Concrete – Photography and Architecture" Fotomuseum Winterthur is celebrating its 20th anniversary. They opened their doors on January 29, 1993.

Architecture has always been an important platform for the frequently heated discussion of ideas and views, zeitgeist and weltanschauung, everyday life and aesthetics. Pictures speak a language of their own. They transform volume into surface; distil matter into forms and signs. Photography shapes architecture, enlarging and reducing it, heightening and shortening it, accentuating it. Photography and architecture confront us on a daily basis, often without our...

After the glamor of Oscar night, (Everyone know that "Argo," directed by Ben Affleck, has won the Oscar for Best Picture. Or Jennifer Lawrence won the Oscar for Best Actress for her performance in "Silver Linings Playbook." Or Daniel Day-Lewis won the Oscar for Best Actor for the title role in "Lincoln."... “Life of Pi,” won four trophies, including the best director honor for Ang Lee. “Les Misérables” joined “Argo” in taking home three awards, and “Django Unchained” was honored with two, including one for Quentin Tarantino for best original screenplay), now comes the hangover and we have remembered this exhibition at the Whitney Museum in New York, "Dark and Deadpan: Pop in TV and the movies".

From Andy Warhol’s commercial for Schrafft’s restaurants to Sherman Price’s film The Imp-Probable Mr. Weegee, starring Weegee as a crazy photographer, footage of the moon landing, and George Kuchar’s mock Hollywood melodrama HOLD ME WHILE I’M NAKED, this exhibition brings together rarely seen films, advertisements, and political campaign messages that reflect the extravagant yet deadpan excess of Pop. Together they reveal the central...
