Hans Finsler was one of the main protagonists of objective photography (Sachfotografie). He was close to the avant-garde movement of the early twentieth century, and he specialized in the representation of objects since the beginning of his career. This exhibition, organized in collaboration with the Rolla Foundation, is entirely dedicated to a specific series created in 1928 by the Swiss photographer, commissioned by the German confectionery factory Most. The only subjects are the company’s products, chocolate and marzipan miniatures depicted in great detail thanks to a particular combination of technical ability and philosophical minutiae. The sweets are treated as unique works of artisanal and industrial brilliance. This photographic series represents a middle ground between an advertising communication and the recognition of authentic sculptural values.
Exhibition produced in collaboration with Rolla Foundation, Bruzella.
Open from Tuesday to Sunday, from 10 am to 7 pm.
