From November 19, 2013 to April 6, 2014, the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain will present América Latina 1960-2013, coproduced with the Museo Amparo in Puebla (Mexico). The exhibition will offer a new perspective on Latin American photography from 1960 to today, focusing on the relationship between text and the photographic image.
Bringing together more than seventy artists from eleven different countries, it reveals the great diversity of photographic practices by presenting the work of documentary photographers as well as that of contemporary artists who appropriate the medium in different ways.
This unique presentation will provide the visitor with the opportunity to delve into the history of the region and to rediscover the works of major artists rarely exhibited in Europe.
The show is the largest exhibition of Swiss photography in a space of over 3,500m: 120 photographers show their recent work, selected by the curator Neomi Gamliel-Groot. Here you can see the full list.
During these four days of event, Photo Schweiz invited as speakers Peter Lindbergh, Christian Lutz, Diana Scheunemann, Oliviero Toscani, Gerhard Steidl & Philipp Keel, Greg Gorman and Arnold Odermatt.

Exhibition Paul Reas: Daydreaming about the Good Times at Impressions Gallery, Bradford. Paul Reas is part of the pioneering generation of photographers who revealed and critiqued British class and culture in the 1980’s and 90’s. Strongly influenced by his working class upbringing in Bradford, Reas used humour and sharp observation to comment on a new corporate and commercial world epitomised by heritage industry sites, retail parks, and supermarkets.
