Fabrik : ein Bildepos der Technik by Jakob Tuggener( Book )

7 editions published between 1943 and 2011 in German and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jakob Tuggener's Fabrik, published in Erlenbach-Zurich in 1943, is considered to be a milestone in the history of photography books. The series of seventy-two photographs in this Photo Epos of Technology is oriented toward the expressionist aesthetic of the silent movie. It imparts a sceptical view of the destructive potential of unbridled technological progress - at the time the Swiss military industry was producing weapons for World War II. Tuggener's uncompromising subjective photography and his critical attitude did not suit his time. Fabrik was not acommercial success - the copies were sold at a loss and in part apparently even converted to pulp. Now the work, which has since become a sought-after classic, is being reissued as a reprint with a contemporary afterword. Jakob Tuggener (1904-1988) was a photographer, film maker and painter. In the major themes of his photographic work - labour in a factory, simple rural life and magnificent parties of high society - Tuggener composed print-ready book maquettes, but for Fabrik alone he found a publisher. Tuggener was presented by Otto Steinert (exhibition:subjektive fotografie, 1951/53) and - arranged by Robert Frank - by Edward Steichen (exhibitions: Post-War European Photography and Family of Man, 1953/55). The Helmhaus in Zurich devoted a retrospective to him in 1974. Tuggener left an immense and practically untouched life's work: more than sixty book maquettes, thousands of exhibition photographs and work prints, hundreds of colour slides, drawings, watercolors, oil paintings and more than twenty silent films

Jakob Tuggener : Fabrik, une épopée industrielle, 1933-1953 by Jakob Tuggener( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Catalogue officiel de l'exposition Jakob Tuggener, Fabrik, une épopée industrielle, 1933-1953 au Pavillon populaire de Montpellier du 1er juillet au 18 octobre 2015. "Poète de l'image, sensible à l'anodin, même dans un domaine comme l'usine", le photographe suisse Jakob Tuggener reste peu connu. Pourtant, la cohérence de son expression personnelle peut être comparée à celle du grand photographe américano-suisse Robert Frank. 0Le vaste ensemble présenté au Pavillon Populaire de la ville de Montpellier à partir du 30 juin 2015 offre une perspective unique sur l'univers industriel des années 1930 aux années 1950. A cette occasion, cent trente photographies issues du fonds Jakob Tuggener déposé à la Fondation suisse pour la photographie (Winterthür) sont montrées pour la première fois en France. Né à Zurich, Jakob Tuggener (1904-1988) était à la fois photographe, cinéaste et peintre.0

Emil Schulthess, 1913 in Zürich geboren, zählt zu den grossen Schweizer Fotografen des 20. Jahrhunderts. Während seiner Grafikerlehre besuchte er die von Hans Finsler geleitete Fotoklasse an der Kunstgewerbeschule Zürich. Nach Studienaufenthalten in Paris arbeitete er als Grafiker in Zürich. Von 1941 bis 1957 prägte er als Art Director das Gesicht der Kulturzeitschrift 'Du'. Im Auftrag der Zeitschrift reiste er 1953 quer durch die Vereinigten Staaten. Aus der Fülle seiner Aufnahmen entstand 1955 sein erster grosser Bildband 'usa' mit spektakulären Fotografien in Farbe und Schwarz-Weiss. Seine Bücher über die Antarktis, Afrika, die Sowjetunion oder China gehörten zu den populärsten Bildbänden ihrer Zeit, in der Schweiz ebenso wie im Ausland. Zum 100. Geburtstag von Emil Schulthess würdigt die Fotostiftung Schweiz dessen Beitrag zur schweizerischen wie zur internationalen Fotografie in Form einer retrospektiven Ausstellung.0Exhibition: Fotostiftung Schweiz, Zürich, Switzerland (7.9.13-23.2.2014)
