This book traces Kati Horna’s steps from Budapest to Paris, Spain, and Mex- ico, following the career of a cosmopolitan figure in the twentieth-century avant-garde.
On the occasion of the centenary of the birth of photographer Kati Horna, the Museo Amparo in Puebla has organized an exhibition of her work, scheduled to travel later to the Jeu de Paume in Paris and the Palau de la Virreina in Bar- celona. The catalogue-book of the exhibition, published under a joint imprint with Editorial RM, represents a recognition of Horna’s photographic career and is the first adequate single-volume treatment of her work.
The book traces Kati Horna’s steps from Budapest to Paris, Spain, and Mexico, following the career of a cosmopolitan figure in the twentieth-century avant- garde. It contains essays by Péter Baki, Jean-François Chevrier, Estrella de Diego, Juan Manuel Bonet, and José Antonio Rodríguez, as well as a chronol- ogy of Horna’s life drawn up by Ángeles Alonso, a text by her daughter Norah Horna, and documentary material from her personal archive. The reproduc- tions in the book, representative of all the genres practiced by Kati Horna, include hitherto unpublished images.
