Le Corbusier – Seen by René Burri

11.5. – 17.11.2019

Swiss photographer René Burri (1933–2014) is considered one of the most important photographers of the 20th century. He completed his training at Zurich School of Applied Arts (now Zurich University of the Arts) in Hans Finsler’s legendary photography class. Through his portraits and reportages, Burri found his own pictorial language already at an early age. He met Le Corbusier for the first time at the opening of the pilgrimage chapel in Ronchamp (France). The photographer subsequently became the architect’s visual chronicler and, particularly in 1959 and 1960, explored his oeuvre in-depth. Featuring 17 original photographs, the small permanent exhibition reflects Burri’s view — of both Le Corbusier’s work and person.
