Balthasar Burkhard

Exhibition Balthasar Burkhard, Fotomuseum Winterthusr

The museum for Photography (Fotomuseum) will showcase in cooperation with the Fotostiftung the oeuvre of the Swiss artist Balthasar Burkhard (1944–2010) in a major retrospective. Burkhard’s work spans half a century: from his early days as a trainee photographer to his role in chronicling the art of his time, eventually becoming a photographic artist in his own right who brought photography into the realms of contemporary art in the form of the monumental tableau. More than 150 works and groups of works chart the progress of his own photographic career and the emergence of photography as an art form. An exhibition in collaboration with Museum Folkwang (Essen) and Museo d’arte della Svizzera italiana (Lugano).
