27 January - 17 April 2016

 

MAST Foundation presents two exhibitions dedicated to the Swiss photographer Jakob Tuggener (1904–1988), whose work is being shown in Italy for the first time.
The exhibition FABRIK 1933–1953 presents, in the MAST PhotoGallery, over 150 original prints of Tuggener’s work, drawn both from his photographic book FABRIK – an essay unique in its kind, with a critical approach of great visual and human impact regarding the relationship between humans and machines – and from other photos by the artist dealing with work in his country.
The NUITS DE BAL 1934–1950 slide shows on Level 0 present images of balls and other social events, but also the “invisible labour” of musicians, waiters, cooks, valets and butlers.
Besides the 150 factory photographs and the projection of his work on balls, MAST is also exhibiting a collection of book maquettes, which Tuggener himself used to make up by hand.

In addition, in order to represent the eclecticism and exceptional nature of this artist, the show has been enriched with SHORT FILMS distinguished by a dynamic directorial style and an editing technique that owes much to the theories of Ejzenštejn, with shifts from the long shot to the close-up:

PROJECTIONS – Continual
AERIAL MEETING, 1937, 6’
THE PULSE OF NEW TIMES, 1938, 12’
THE MILL ON THE LAKE, 1944, 5’

The exhibitions are curated by Martin Gasser and Urs Stahel and promoted by MAST Foundation in cooperation with Jakob Tuggener Foundation, Uster, Swiss Foundation for Photography, Winterthur.
