Peter Keetman German
Not on view
In the 1950s the predominantly German group Photoform revived the optimistic graphic energy of German photojournalism and Soviet book arts of the 1920s, merging it with the new technical capabilities of postwar equipment and processes. Peter Keetman was a key member of the group, which mounted three innovative exhibitions under the title Subjektive Fotografie. Construction Site alludes both to the arduous labor of postwar reconstruction and to the utopian tenets of Constructivism, which had declared the camera itself a "construction site," in which conceptions about Euclidean space might be disassembled and redesigned.
