About the Book
Panta rhei!, a motto that does not apply to the eternal works of Hermann Haller, Rolf Brem and Karl Geiser to name a few. Works representing the daily life of the bather as well of the handworker change earthly habits and passions into myth. Art pieces that embellish majestic villas on Lake Zurich as well hidden public parks in the city, along an ideal line from the Southern district of Wollishofen up to Oerlikon. Seen every day by everyone but unknown to most people, sometimes with obscure origins hard to be traced back, this photographic reportage in black and white not only documents their presence in the city, but above all wants to emphasize their personalities. From the voluptuous bodies of the Schreitendes Mädchen by Eduard Bick and the Mädchengruppe by Arthur Tigram Abeljanz to the arrogant Kugelwerfer of Carl Leonard Fischer and the solitary contemplation of the young boys in front of the Museum für Gestaltung. A photographic exhibition that invites not only to look at but also to look inward.
