Raoul Hausmann

Galleria Parmeggiani
30 April - 8 June 2008  
Raoul Hausmann (1886-1971) was a famous Dadaist. After having written a text with the meaningful title I Am Not A Photographer and working with photomontage, he devoted himself for a long time to photography. From 1927 - 1933 his work focussed on landscapes and the female nude, which he combined through a gaze that scanned and covered places and bodies, creating a parallel relationship between their forms but, most importantly, breaking through the visual barrier of the photographic image to open it to what he called “eccentric sensoriality”.

Fotografia Europea
has chosen five European photographers from five different eras and contexts, able to offer the main facets – as well as, in some cases, a first hand theoretical reflection – of modern problems. This section starts with the present day and offers some historical cross-references with a sample that typifies a possible approach, including famous figures, sometimes seen as eccentric in terms of the most widespread reflection. Together with Raoul Hausmann this section includes Paolo Gioli, Jorge Molder, Pierre et Gilles and Wols.
