070211: Wien Museum Karlsplatz Trude Fleischmann – The self-assured eye

Wien Museum Karlsplatz Trude Fleischmann – The self-assured eye 27.01.11 until 29.05.11 Nonchalant Vienna Trude Fleischmann graduated from the photography class at the Graphische Lehr- und Versuchsanstalt in Vienna and, following a short intermezzo with the star photographer Madame d’Ora, she quickly advanced to the top portrait photographer of Vienna’s upper crust. She was famed for her double portraits of Adolf Loos and Peter Altenberg created in the Atelier Schieberth. She portrayed actors, dancers, composers and authors free of charge and, in turn, they served as the best advertisement for her work. Even young ladies and men who never rose to fame, were staged as a perfect media for a new, liberal and unbelievably relaxed young and sexy Zeitgeist. Trude Fleischmann and her work is symptomatic for Vienna’s progressive culture scene of the First Republic. The new “eye” of the Bauhaus, as it manifested itself for example in Marianne Breslauer’s work shown just a short while ago in Berlin, was synthesized with elements of the more pleasing pictorialism to a more agreeable form of contemporary visual language without technical or formal experiments. In 1923, Jewish-born Trude Fleischmann converted to Catholicism. She attempted to come to terms with the conditions of the Ständestaat by selling travel reports and Austrian landscape photographs to magazines. Later she immigrated to New York and successfully continued her career. The Wien Museum owns the largest collection of Fleischmann's works - which it bought from Max Ermer in 1936. Yet a large number of her works disappeared after her emigration. The Fleischmann photo exhibition, with its diverse contexts of cultural interrelations and supplemented by prints from private collections, is well worth seeing.
