Zeitgeist and Glamour: the Decades of the Jet Set at the NRW Forum in Dusseldorf


DUSSELDORF.- The Sixties. It is as if a new era has dawned, a ‘revolution of the young’ has begun: new faces, incredible music, unusual beauties, a change of fashion, style, and taste, another way of life. Everyone wants to be a part of it and everyone and everything is mingling together: la dolce vita and subculture, glamour and art and intellectual currents. The protagonists of money and power surround themselves with the protagonists of the arts: aristocracy, politics, business, painting, music, film, fashion, dance, theatre, and performance. Legendary images of the 60s and 70s will be brought together in the ‘Zeitgeist & Glamour’ exhibition at the NRW-Forum in Düsseldorf; the most spectacular photographs of an exciting era: the icons of an age, superstars and celebrities, and unmistakeable milieux. There are both masterful photographs of the highest aesthetic order, ground-breaking in their finesse, and cheerful snapshots
