Fabrik : ein Bildepos der Technik by Jakob Tuggener( Book )

18 editions published between 1943 and 2011 in German and English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jakob Tuggener's Fabrik, published in Erlenbach-Zurich in 1943, is considered to be a milestone in the history of photography books. The series of seventy-two photographs in this Photo Epos of Technology is oriented toward the expressionist aesthetic of the silent movie. It imparts a sceptical view of the destructive potential of unbridled technological progress - at the time the Swiss military industry was producing weapons for World War II. Tuggener's uncompromising subjective photography and his critical attitude did not suit his time. Fabrik was not acommercial success - the copies were sold at a loss and in part apparently even converted to pulp. Now the work, which has since become a sought-after classic, is being reissued as a reprint with a contemporary afterword. Jakob Tuggener (1904-1988) was a photographer, film maker and painter. In the major themes of his photographic work - labour in a factory, simple rural life and magnificent parties of high society - Tuggener composed print-ready book maquettes, but for Fabrik alone he found a publisher. Tuggener was presented by Otto Steinert (exhibition:subjektive fotografie, 1951/53) and - arranged by Robert Frank - by Edward Steichen (exhibitions: Post-War European Photography and Family of Man, 1953/55). The Helmhaus in Zurich devoted a retrospective to him in 1974. Tuggener left an immense and practically untouched life's work: more than sixty book maquettes, thousands of exhibition photographs and work prints, hundreds of colour slides, drawings, watercolors, oil paintings and more than twenty silent films

Jakob Tuggener - Bücher und Filme by Jakob Tuggener( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in 3 languages and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jakob Tuggener's key photographic motifs were conditions in the factory, simple life in the countryside and the glamour of high society. At the same time Tuggener was fascinated by railroads, ports, ships, car races and airshows. Through photography he sought to capture all facets of modern life in a world between dark factories and glittering ballrooms. From the mid-1930s Tuggener made book maquettes of all these subjects, each crafted meticulously by hand and featuring up to 150 original photos. None of these was published in his lifetime except Fabrik in 1943, his seminal Bildepos der Technik which has formed the basis of his international reputation and was reprinted by Steidl in 2011. Many of Tuggener's subjects are also the focus of his short films, whose style oscillates between the documentary and fantasy. Books and Films comprises facsimiles of twelve of Tuggener's original maquettes, dating from 1936 to 1982, as well as a selection of his 16mm films on DVD. Both these silent black-and-white films and his photobooks contain no text, just as he intended.
