Revolution in Photography

Revolution in Photography

Foam_Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam presents a unique retrospective of the world-famous Russian avant-garde artist Alexander Rodchenko (1891-1956). The exhibition will contain over 200 vintage photographs, some of which have never been exhibited in the West before. The exhibition has been made in collaboration with the Moscow House of Photography. The Russian avant-garde of the twentieth century is a unique phenomenon not only in Russia, but also in world culture. Alexander Rodchenko was one of the main generators of this era. He worked as a painter and graphic designer before turning to photomontage and photography. Rodchenko's influence changed the ideas about the nature of photography and the role of the photographer. Conceptual thinking was introduced into photography. Instead of just being the reflection of reality, photography also became a device for the visual representation of dynamic intellectual constructions.

Event starts December 18, 2009 and ends March 17, 2010
