Exhibition. Erwin Blumenfeld, Photography, 1930-1950

From 29 September 2023 to 4 February 2024 at the Jewish Museum of Belgium.

The Jewish Museum of Belgium presents an exhibition featuring the photographer Erwin Blumenfeld (1897-1969). Famous for his creative fashion portraits, Blumenfeld's artistry offers a polymorphic work where Dadaïst inspiration, political committment and artistic experiments intertwine.

Featuring over a hundred photographs, the exhibition looks back at the life of this Berlin Jew who evolved within the cultural avant-garde movement in Amsterdam and Paris. As WWII broke out, he endured internment in a camp but was able to flee to New York in 1941 where his art blossomed with a free exploration of shapes and colors.
