An artist in exile, hundreds of pictures to discover Ibiza at the beginning of the XXth century… A travel in time to explore the deep soul of the island.
1933: Threatened by the Nazis who consider him as a degenerated artist, Raoul Hausmann, one of the founding fathers of the famous Dada movement, has to leave hastily Germany. He takes refuge in Ibiza.
During three years, he will photograph the island, being interested in particular in its architecture and in the famous country houses, the fincas ibicencas. He will also capture objects and scenes of the everyday life, from the details of rustic chairs to the meetings between men in the cafés of San Josep.
For a long time considered as lost, these photos of the ibicenca period of Raoul Hausmann were found recently. Those 234 photos establish a rare testimony of the authentic and rustic Ibiza. This precious heritage is to be discovered through several art books, or during exhibition as at the moment in Paris, at the famous Galerie du jeu de Paume.
