The focus of the NRW-Forum exhibition is on Stephen Shore, a key figure in the US New Color Photography movement.The first part of the exhibition, which is based on the New York Aperture Foundation’s Biographical Landscape retrospective, will provide a comprehensive overview of Shore’s ground-breaking work in the 1970s and 1980s. From an early stage, the work of the US New Color Photography movement influenced the students on Bernd Becher’s photography course at the Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf, a course which was created in 1976. The second part of the exhibition will explore the innovative motifs that Becher’s class developed in the exciting area between their own photographic tradition and that of the US tradition. Participating artists: “Stephen Shore, Bernd und Hilla Becher, Thomas Struth, Volker Döhne, Axel Hütte, Candida Höfer, Thomas Ruff, Tata Ronkholz, Wendelin Bottländer, Andreas Gursky, Martin Rosswog, Andi Brenner, Simone Nieweg, Boris Becker, Kris Scholz, Stefan Schneider, Claudia Fährenkemper, Claus Goedicke, Matthias Koch, Laurenz Berges, Elger Esser, Miles Coolidge, Bernhard Fuchs”
This insightful book is the first to present a comprehensive survey of the Modernist movement as it emerged in America between 1920 and 1960 in various graphic media. It identifies and examines great works in advertising, information design, identity, magazine design, print, dimensional design, and posters that by mid-century had defined American graphic design. R. Roger Remington begins by discussing the emergence of Modernism and its major historical influences, including European avant-garde art movements, technology, geopolitical issues, popular culture, educational innovations such as the Bauhaus, architecture, industrial design, and photography. The heart of the book brings together the key works of mid-century Modernism, presenting them chronologically from the 1930s to the 1950s. The final section shows the impact of and reactions to these Modernist influences as graphic design in America matured into the 1960s and beyond. Handsomely designed and illustrated, American Modernism is destined to become,a classic text in the study of design and visual culture.
