Montpellier art school present the Pavillon populaire exhibition
After the "Life in Kodak " exhibition, which retraces the famous Coloramas, the Pavillon Populaire now offers to visitors the possibility to discover the industrial saga of the 30’s, thanks to photos of the famous photographer and filmmaker Jakob Tuggener.
The exhibition will show many original photographs taken by Tuggener. Visitors will discover among others 72 pictures without text, from the book Fabrik; some images from the book will be presented in exclusivity.
Those images reveal an underlying the author skepticism towards technical progress and highlights the relationship between men and machines. This ambitious exhibition provides a unique perspective on the industrial world from 1930 to 1950.
One feels the influence of German expressionists in Tuggener work. He does not try to transcribe the truth, but rather tries to express through the prism of its sensitivity, and its subjectivity, industrial transformations and mutations he witnessed.
