Underground monument. Rudy Burckhardt’s New York

The CCCB's cinema


Apart from being one of the most famous modern photographers in New York, Rudy Burckhardt created an extraordinary underground legacy of work as a filmmaker. Through the undetected eye of a camera, he filmed urban space as an entity that was political, vibrant, sexual and hectic, subject to the sign of the times and its relevant changes.
