Jaromír Funke: avantgardní fotograf
Jaromír Funke (1896?1945) is one of the most important figures of Avant-garde photography amongst the Czechs and also internationally. His works are in collections of important art institutions ranging from the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the Centre Pompidou in Paris all the way to the Tokyo Photographic Art Museum. In recent years he has also appeared in all the serious histories and encyclopaedias of photography. But it has taken a long time to acknowledge Funke?s importance. 0The exhibition focuses on his Avant-garde photographs, which in a distinctive and often highly forward-looking way, elaborate the impetuses of Cubism, abstract art, New Objectivity, Constructivism, and Surrealism.00Exhibition: Leica-Gallery, Prague, Czech Republic (25.11.2016-19.01.2017) / Centre Tchèque, Paris, France (09.11.-15.12.2017) / Fotografie Forum Frankfurt, Germany (27.01.-29.04.2018).
