Photoexhibition: ZÜRICH – SCHWARZ AUF WEISS (Zürich in Black & White)

This exhibition shows a choice of historical photographs from the Zurich-city archives.

In Photobastei there are over Protected content pictures exhibited from all areas of Zürich. These are from a period of Protected content 1920. They not only show buildings, but also pictures of village and city life during that time.

The exhibition is set up like a photographic walk through the city. All 22 city districts are included. Some buildings and places can still be recognized, others are now just a (photographic) memory or show the developments of the last Protected content .

The photos are presented in many various forms, from postcards to portraits. They were taken on behalf of institutions or private persons.

Many of these photos have in common that they are not static, but rather ‚lively‘. That is: there are people posing or looking out from behind windows. In those days photography was extraordinary and quite laborious. The cameras of the time were relatively large, and the handling (glass plates!) was time-consuming.
Hence people‘s curiosity was at its height. As hopefully yours will be too by visiting this exhibition!
