Wolf Suschitzky NO RESTING PLACE
Opens: 16 July from 7 pm
Exhibition run: 17 July - 26 September 2020
With the photographic work of Wolfgang Suschitzky, FOTOHOF has chosen to take a look at the historically significant artistic position of an Austrian-born personality whose life was, however, marked by flight and exile. Wolf Suschitzky died in London in 2016 at the age of 104 and, in 2018, his estate was handed over to FOTOHOF archiv as a permanent loan, to be scientifically processed and made accessible to the public.
The exhibition project Wolf Suschitzky − No Resting Place is not intended, however, as a retrospective of the photographer and cameraman's entire oeuvre, which stretches from the 1930s to the early 21st century. Rather, through its 'Work' theme, it chooses to address a subject matter omnipresent in the work of the Viennese-born photographer and examine the continuity of content in a biography punctuated by emigration and exile.

In this exhibition the FOTOHOF archive presents the newly discovered and now for the first time exhibited late work of the important British-Austrian photographer Edith Tudor-Hart. She took the photographs in the early 1950s and published them in a two-volume pedagogical introductory work on early school education entitled "Moving and Growing" (London 1952). In this work, the elements determining her life - the upbringing of children and socially engaged photography - come together in one work.
Edith Tudor-Hart comes from a secularized Jewish family in Vienna and her first professional training was as a kindergarten teacher with a special interest in modern, enlightened pedagogy. She also took Montessori courses in London. Later she turned to photography and after studies at the Viennese „Graphische Lehr- und Versuchsanstalt“ and at the „Bauhaus Dessau“ she went into exile in London to work very successfully as a photographer. Edith Tudor-Hart's brother is the photographer and filmmaker Wolf Suschitzky (1912 - 2016), whose life's work is also kept in the FOTOHOF archive.
