With more than 300 photographies, the exhibition shows the most outstanding works of one of the most important photographers: André Kertesz was born in Hungary, lived in Budapest, Paris and New York and became famous with works like „Schwimmer unter Wasser“ (1917), „Chez Mondrian“ (1926) or the widely known „Gabel“ (1929). After Berlin the exhibition will be shown in Budapest at the Magyar Nemzeti Múzeum from October to December 2011. A richly catalogue has been published.
