A monographic exhibition that reaffirms William Klein's visionary work as one of the most outstanding displays of the 20th century and, above all, highlights his clear, fierce vision at the core of modern society.
William Klein (New York, 1928) revolutionised the history of photography, establishing the bases of a modern aesthetic that still remains to this day: one which is in direct contact with a post-war society yet to be reconstructed, imagined and dreamed of. The monographic exhibition: ‘William Klein. Manifesto‘ is the first major retrospective of Klein in our country. Within the framework of the PHotoEspaña festival, the exhibition aims to unite all the facets of the artist’s pictorial, photographic, graphic and cinematographic work. And through these (re)discover the silhouettes of the boxer Mohammed Ali dancing in the ring, or the “boxing painting” of the judoka Shinohara: both figures of freedom over the course of a cacophonous and passionate century.
