Jedermann Collection
ZURICH  •  Fotomuseum Winterthur  •  Ongoing
Last year, the Fotomuseum Winterthur acquired the American "Jedermann Collection", which comprises 177 works by 62 artists with a total of 340 photographs. The main part of the collection is focused on the conceptual photography of the 1960s and 70s, with works by Vito Acconci, John Baldessari, Bernd & Hilla Becher, Victor Burgin, Hamish Fulton, Michael Heizer, Richard Long, Gordon Matta-Clark, Sol LeWitt, Robert Smithson and many others. A second part comprises the media-reflecting, post-modern photography of the 1980s with works by Barbara Bloom, Louise Lawler, Cindy Sherman and many others who explored the effects of the mass media such as the cinema, magazines, advertising etc. on our society.
