"The art of living aspires to better living. Our dematerialized, virtual world is searching for a harmonious lifestyle that is more anchored in reality. A new vitality is perfecting the riches of Nature. Design is recomposing a bio-inspired world. The world of the home, a true living organism, is part of this revitalizing effect. We are rediscovering the primal force of original fodder. We are exploring the modalities of emotional comfort in which Beauty is first. We are experimenting with new fields in the sciences in order to lay the foundations for hope of rebirth. A manifesto for a better present, with the rallying cry: life to the hilt. "

10 October-20 January/William Klein + Daido Moriyama/Tate Modern/London

Explore modern urban life in New York and Tokyo through the photographs of William Klein and Daido Moriyama. This is the first exhibition to look at the relationship between the work of influential photographer and filmmaker Klein, and that of Moriyama, the most celebrated photographer to emerge from the Japanese Provoke movement of the 1960s.
With work from the 1950s to the present day, the exhibition demonstrates the visual affinity between their urgent, blurred and grainy style of photography and also their shared desire to convey street life and political protest, from anti-war demonstrations and gay pride marches to the effects of globalisation and urban deprivation.
The exhibition also considers the medium and dissemination of photography itself, exploring the central role of the photo-book in avant-garde photography and the pioneering use of graphic design within these publications. As well the issues of Provoke magazine in which Moriyama and his contemporaries showcased their work, the exhibition will include fashion photography from Klein’s work with Vogue and installations relating to his satirical films Mister Freedom and Who Are You Polly Maggoo?
