Catalog of an exhibition held at the Museo Amparo, Puebla, Mexico, December 7, 2013-April 28, 2014, and subsequently at the Jeu de Paume, Paris and Palau de la Virreina, Barcelona. "On the occasion of the centenary of the birth of photographer Kati Horna (b. Budapest 1912 - d. Mexico in 2000), 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 Barcelona. 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 Peter Baki, Jean-Francois Chevrier, Estrella de Diego, Juan Manuel Bonet, and Jose Antonio Rodriguez, as well as a chronology of Horna's life drawn up by AÌ ngeles Alonso, a text by her daughter Norah Horna, and documentary material from her personal archive. The reproductions in the book, representative of all the genres practiced by Kati Horna, include hitherto unpublished images"--Publisher's website. Contents: Budapest, 1912-1932.
