> DESCRIPTION

The internationally acclaimed photographer Peter Lindbergh has in part determined the fashion scene during the past 25 years. His melancholy images give a view of the inner essence of supermodels like Linda Evangelista, Tatjana Patitz or Kate Moss. The FoMu presents the series Berlin, which he made for Vogue magazine in 2009, and aselection by Klaus Honnef, from 2010, a unique combination of his world famous images and more recent work.

 

Frank Philippi was instrumental in putting the post-war photography in Belgium on the map. Philippi’s practice involved the full range of all possible genres in photographic art. He deliberately opted for a pure, aesthetic approach. Fashion, the car, the jukebox and Expo '58 are themes that often reappear in his work. The FoMu preserves the archives of the recently deceased photographer from the period 1948-1970 and is now presenting a unique retrospective of his multifaceted oeuvre.

 

The New York magazine Visionaire (from 1991) is leading, decadent, uncompromising and luxurious. A host of international fashion designers, art directors and photographers have collaborated on it. Visionare pushes the boundaries of the 'magazine' concept. Its extravagant design and themes make every edition unique. This current exhibition is a collaboration between the FoMu and the MoMu.


Le photographe de renommée mondiale Peter Lindbergh a marqué pendant 25 ans le monde de la mode de son empreinte. Ses images mélancoliques percent l’essence de grands mannequins comme Linda Evangelista, Tatjana Patitz ou Kate Moss. Le FoMu expose les séries Berlin qu’il a réalisée en 2009 pour le magazine Vogue et A selection by Klaus Honnef de 2010, combinaison unique d’images iconiques et de créations récentes.

 

Frank Philippi a contribué à donner sa place à la photographie belge d’après-guerre. Philippi a exercé tous les genres photographiques. Il choisissait consciemment une approche pure et esthétique. Des sujets comme la mode, l’automobile, le jukebox et Expo ’58 revenaient souvent dans ses photos. Le FoMu détient les archives du photographe récemment décédé pour la période 1948-1970 et présente maintenant une rétrospective unique de sa riche œuvre photographique.

 

Le ‘Fashion & Art’ Magazine newyorkais Visionaire (à partir de 1991) est un périodique de luxe audacieux, décadent, et sans compromis auquel collaborent des créateurs de mode internationaux, des directeurs artistiques et de grands photographes. Visionaire repousse les frontières du concept du magazine. Chaque numéro est unique de par sa mise en page extravagante et les thèmes qu’il aborde. Cette exposition a été montée en collaboration avec le MoMu.
