Color Mania – Color in Photography and Film

Fotomuseum Winterthur  09/07 – 11/24,  2019

“Since the earliest days of cinema, film has been a colorful medium and art form. More than 230 film color processes have been devised in the course of film history, often in close connection with photography. For instance, the screen process Dufaycolor was initially developed in the context of still photography before being used in motion pictures in the 1930s. The exhibition highlights the historical connections of color as a material in photography and film and also presents the application of historical color processes and techniques in the work of contemporary photographers and artists. Alongside iconic works, the exhibition will feature rare exhibits that were discovered within research projects on this theme, as well as works that, in some cases, artists are specially creating for the exhibition. Among the contemporary artists are Dunja Evers, Raphael Hefti, Barbara Kasten and Alexandra Navratil.”
