Tobia Bezzola: New Director of the Museum Folkwang

Progressive Museum Matched with Innovative Director
The Museum Folkwang was the first public collection in Germany and was from the outset progressive, collecting Modernists, supporting avant-guarde movements in times of "reform," and dedicating energy to the exhibition and collection of photography and new media. Today the museum's photographic collection exceeds 50,000 works.

Tobia Bezzola, Kunsthaus Zürich's current head of exhibitions, is a good match for the Folkwang. Bezzola has curated exhibitions with work by artistic innovators, including Joseph Beuys, Françis Alÿs and Thomas Struth; and contributed text to many catalogues. One of his more notable essays was for the exhibition The Original Copy: Photography of Sculpture, 1839 to Today. Surely Bezzola will make an ideal fit and lasting contribution to the Folkwang.
