After many years of relative obscurity, the photographs of Claude Cahun (born Lucy Schwob, 1894-1954) are now very much at the forefront of art history. They have featured in numerous exhibitions over the last twenty years and been the subject of many studies. This retrospective, the first to be organised on this scale in sixteen years, sets out to show the diversity and essential unity of her art, but also to place it in the context of the artist’s intellectual development, the boldness and singularity of which significantly inform today’s scene.

This exhibition was organized by Jeu de Paume, París, and coproduced with La Virreina Centre de la Imatge, Barcelona, and The Art Institute of Chicago.

The exhibition shows the movie Playing a Part: the story of Claude Cahun(Dir Lizzie Thynne, UK, 2011) that combines rarely seen war archive and contemporary footage and mimics the photographer’s own surreal style.
