Vienna Hosts Robert Frank Exhibition on the American Dream

VIENNA – The revolutionary vision of Swiss-American photographer and documentary filmmaker Robert Frank and his take on the post-war “American dream” is on display in an exhibition that was unveiled Monday in the Austrian capital.

Vienna’s Albertina Museum is hosting the show, which will be open to the public from Oct. 25 until Jan. 21.

The exhibition features 100 works, including photos, books, negatives and videos that introduce visitors to the complex figure of Robert Frank.

The 92-year-old Frank revolutionized the world of photography in the 1950s by focusing on those who lived on the margins of society and the conflicts that went unnoticed by most people.

The show includes the first photos taken by Frank during his trips in Europe and the US, as well as his introspective work after his daughter died in a plane crash.

The core of the exhibition is “The Americans,” a collection of photos in black and white that Frank took during his trips in the US between 1955-1957, chronicling American society in the post-war period.

Frank was chasing the dark side of American society marked by violence, racism and poverty.
