Exhibition of the Walter Binder photo class of the Kunstgewerbeschule Zürich (ZHdK) in the sixties and seventies: from March 13 to May 5, 2013.
A selection of about 190 exhibits (pictures and photo objects, mock-ups and drafts) was made from around 3500 photographs taken between 1958 and 1976, and currently located in the comprehensive archives of the ZhdK.
From 1958 to 1976, Walter Binder, who in 1972 also set up the Swiss Photo Foundation (Winterthur), took over the photo class from its founder (in 1932), Hans Finsler, an important photographer of the new objectivity movement. For a very long time, the school in Zurich was the most significant photography training centre in Switzerland.
The opening is on Tuesday, March 12, at 19:00. Thilo Koenig, the exhibition’s curator will introduce it.
The exhibition will be on display at the vestibule and library entrance of Zurich's High School of the Arts until May 5.
