Photographic perspectives on the 1950s in Europe

When you think of the 1950s, what do you see? A pink Cadillac? Buddy Holly’s horn-rimmed glasses? A family gathered around a Sunday roast?

Join us on a photographic journey through Europe in this fascinating decade. It was an era of division – between east and west, liberty and repression, terror and euphoria – but also a time of growing abundance and modernity.

Whether you experienced the 1950s yourself or you only possess second-hand knowledge, you may be surprised by what this exhibition has in store.

This exhibition was created in the framework of the CEF-project ‘50s in Europe Kaleidoscope’.
