Berlin is where Kati Horna, born in Bu­dapest in 1912, joined Ber­tolt Brecht’s col­lec­tive and met Robert Capa ( the two re­mained close ), Lás­zló Mo­holy– Nagy — then a teacher at the Bauhaus — and Si­mon Guttman, founder of Dephot photo agency. Caught in the era’s po­lit­i­cal vi­cis­si­tudes, she was for­ever on the move, first to Paris then to Spain, in the throes of civil war. She em­braced anar­chism and con­trib­uted to the Um­bral pe­ri­od­i­cal, where she met the man who would be­come her hus­band, the An­dalu­sian painter José Horna. The two fled Europe for Mex­ico. Marked by such fun­da­men­tal po­lit­i­cal ex­pe­ri­ences, and by the in­tel­lec­tual and artis­tic ef­fer­ves­cence of Europe’s cap­i­tal ci­ties be­fore nazism cast its shroud, the pho­tog­ra­phy of Kati Horna is on show in Paris at the Jeu de Paume in an ex­hi­bi­tion which at last does jus­tice to the scope of her work. 3rd June to 14th Septem­ber at

the Jeu de Paume ( Paris ).
