The freezing of a memory: Tribute to Edith Weyde
Today at 8 pm will be opened at José de la Mano Gallery of Madrid the exhibition “El arte de la fotocopia. 1970-1985 (cuando la copia se convierte en original)”. This exhibition, which can be visited until November 8th, has works from many artists of the spanish copy art movement, and among them, many from Alcalacanales and Equipo AC, of our director José Ramón Alcalá, who, in addition, has created a new installation with Rubén Tortosa and supported by Miguel Sánchez.
Edith Weyde was a German chemist at the Agfa company in Leverkusen who, together with the Belgian engineer André Rott, created the process of transferring images by diffusion or Diffusion Transfer Reversal (DTR), with the aim of automating the photographic process, was one of the bigger advances in silver copying techniques (silver salts). It is the basic process that allowed the instant photography of companies like Polaroid, Kodak or Fuji and even the origin of the direct electrophotographic reproduction system.
