ZEITGEIST BECOMES FORM:
GERMAN FASHION PHOTOGRAPHY 1945 - 1995

Helmut Newton, At the Brandenburg Gate
for Deutsche Vogue
Lobby, 3rd and 4th floor galleries
February 26 - April 29, 2009


Zeitgeist Becomes Form: German Fashion Photography 1945 - 1995 features iconic images by some of Germany's most renowned photographers. The 188 images on view include works by Helmut Newton, Wolfgang Tillmans, Olaf Martens, Jürgen Teller, and 35 other photographers.

What exactly is meant by "German fashion photography"? The images chosen reveal a broad interpretation. Zeitgeist Becomes Form is more than a simple history of fashion and how it was photographed. The pictorial language of the photographers and models, as well as the clothing, background, and the technical quality of the photography take visitors illustrate the so-called Zeitgeist (spirit of the times), changes in society, codes of morality, and the feelings and longings of people at a point in time.

Zeitgeist Becomes Form is an exhibit by Institute for Foreign Cultural Relations (IFA) presented in Manila by the Goethe-Institut, Yuchengco Museum, and Rogue Magazine in cooperation with YoCard.
