Launching of the book Photographing Art by Egon von Fürstenberg and screening of a selection of photos
Franz Egon von Fürstenberg works with a large number of international artists and exhibition venues around the world since many decades and has published his photographs in magazines, newspapers and catalogues. His photographic archives represent a must-see memoires contributing to the origins, the encounters and networks that created the contemporary art world and its development among the next generations. The ’70 and ’80 were incredible sparking both in Europe and in America. Chance and passion made Geneva one of the epicenters of this effervescence. For the 10th anniversary of artgenève, ART for the World presents a selection of his shootings of the art world in Geneva during those two decades.
