Brazilian Modernism 1940–1964

Share:

The Museum for Photography in Berlin presents photographs by José Medeiros, Thomaz Farkas, Marcel Gautherot and Hans Gunter Flieg, provided by the Instituto Moreira Salles – open from 27 September 2013 to 5 January 2014. 

In this major exhibition at Berlin's Museum for Photography, four of the movement's leading lights will represent Brazil's path to Moderism. Three of the selected photographers were European post-war émigrés: Thomaz Farkas from Hungary, Marcel Gautherot from France, and Hans Gunter (Günter) Flieg from Germany.  

The country's modernisation boom throughout the years of rapid economic growth had a far-reaching effect on most aspects of Brazilian culture. Photography documented as well as stylised this avant-garde progress – this is particularly apparent in the images by Thomaz Farkas and Marcel Gautherot of the county's new capital, Brasília.  

This is the first project by the Instituto Moreira Salles in Germany. It forms part of the Museum's exhibition series on photography in the decades following World War 2. The series started in 2012 with a presentation of Japanese photography from the post-war era.
