Manifesto

posted by Bridget on 16 September 2014

More interesting events in Europe, this time at the Winterthur Fotomuseum in Switzerland.

fotomuseum

Winterthur Fotomuseum is one of our must watch venues as their events and exhibitions often push the envelope within the photographic discourse.

Their online conversation s also interesting and if you haven't visited this blog then we urge you to do so as it is a fascinating resource for challenging ideas around photography.

Exhibitions of course form part of their programme and their latest installation entitled Manifesto! is a collaboration between written statements and consequential visual expression of the artist's idea.

The sub-title for this show is An Alternative History of Photography as it seeks to match the written words of 56 photographers from the 1840s to the present day with the imagery made at the time. From polemical declarations about the importance of photography to the visual arts to the proclamations of photography's apparent power to change society and assist in political struggles, this exhibition attempts to grapple with photography's constant and incessant desire to agree a definition and find a purpose.

The curators claim that Manifesto! will reveal the many ways photography has sought to renew itself by consistently proclaiming a different future. Whatever the truth of it all, this show sounds intriguing and I for one will get the accompanying catalogue, published by Steidl Verlag to see if the curators have succeeded in their own manifesto.

  • Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using?
    I'm looking to start my own blog in the near future but
    I'm having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different
    then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to
    ask!
