Schadographien. Die Kraft des Lichts

schadographienChristian Schad (1894-1982) created his first photograms in Geneva in 1918/1919. His friend, the Austrian writer Walter Serner, who was part of the Zürich Dada movement together with Tristan Tzara, gave them the name “Schadographs”. The book was published (only in German) on the occasion of the retrospective held in Miesbach, Bavaria (the place where Christian Schad was born) in 1999. It has been out of print for several years! The authors are: Arturo Schwarz, L. Fritz Gruber, Bettina Schad, Christian Schad, Nikolaus Schad and Anna Auer.
