Paul Strand: Photography and Film for the 20th Century
March 7–May 17
Paul Strand (1890–1976) is one of the major photographers of the 20th century, an American modernist whose work established new aesthetic directions for the medium whilst remaining deeply engaged with the world he portrayed. This is the first major retrospective shown in Europe of the photographer’s oeuvre since his death and reveals aspects of his practice in America, Europe, Africa and Latin America. 

Beastly / Tierisch
May 30–October 4
Representations of animals are everywhere in our culture, from advertising hoardings, to newspapers and television, to hundreds of thousands of images uploaded everyday to the internet. At the same time, animals are consistently subjects of public controversy, whether in relation to animal rights, conservation strategies or genetic engineering. In a lively and appealing installation, Beastly/Tierisch explores these questions through works by leading artists and photographers, including Sammy Baloji, Charlotte Dumas, Jitka Hanzlová, Simen Johan, Chris Marker, Katja Novitskova, Nobuyoshi Araki, Peter Hujar, Elad Lassry and Hiroshi Sugimoto.

Taiyo Onorato & Nico Krebs: Eurasia
October 24, 2015–February 14, 2016
Following their phenomenally successful work The Great Unreal, a road trip through the USA that they subsequently estranged in their studio to the point of recognizability, in 2013 the Swiss duo Taiyo Onorato & Nico Krebs set out once again on a new trip. Now, in their newest large-scale project, they take us on a road trip towards Mongolia. 

Every Photograph is an Enigma
October 24, 2015–February 14, 2016 
Photographs often seem immediately familiar and understandable. But they can also provoke sudden amazement or generate a more sustained perplexity and inquiry. Drawing on a diversity of photographs from his private collection, the photo historian Michel Frizot offers us a questioning counterpoint that works against the grain of received historical and artistic criteria. His assembled images, taken by lovers or unknown career photographers, fall through the gaps of contemporary aesthetic and interpretative categories.

On 10 April the Fotomuseum Winterthur is launching a new exhibition format titled SITUATIONS which will allow us to react to the increasing spread and diversification of photographic media in society. Today, photography is ever present and is circulated and viewed on diverse platforms. From this contemporary perspective we are establishing a dynamic format both within and outside the Museum, a physical and virtual space for pictures, words and ideas.
