Fotomuseum Winterthur

Fotomuseum Winterthur is dedicated to photography as art form and document, and as a representation of reality. Fotomuseum Winterthur is on the one hand an art gallery for photography by contemporary photographers and artists (with exhibitions by Lewis Baltz, William Eggleston, Nan Goldin, Andreas Gursky, Roni Horn, Boris Mikhailov). On the other, the Fotomuseum Winterthur is also a traditional museum for works by 19th and 20th century masters (with exhibitions by Karl Blossfeldt, Bill Brandt, Dorothea Lange, Lisette Model, Albert Renger-Patzsch, August Sander, Charles Sheeler, Edward Weston, Weegee and others). And finally, it is a cultural-historical, sociological museum of applied photography in the fields of industry, architecture, fashion, etc. (with exhibitions on police photography, industrial photography, dam-construction photography, medical photography etc.). These three orientations form the basis of the museum's exhibition program and accompanying publications and events.

Was sich in Zeiten der Printmedien noch auf Text-Bild-Konstellationen beschränkte, hat sich zu hybriden, digitalen Assemblagen weiterentwickelt. Die Ausstellung befragt das Spannungsfeld von Text und Bild in ihren zeitgenössischen Spielformen.
