Description

When asked about life in the U.S. capital, U.S. President Harry S. Truman once allegedly answered cynically: »If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog«! Indeed, almost all of his successors have followed this advice.

Just in time for the beginning of the holiday season the new special exhibition »My Pony Macaroni« – also for families and pet lovers – opens its doors at Museum THE KENNEDYS. Based on more than a century of the history of photography it gives an insight into historical background, funny anecdotes, and interesting facts regarding the relationship of mankind and animals that has developed over centuries.

Over 70 photos – many of them valuable vintage prints – from 30 eminent photographers such as Elliott Erwitt, Richard Avedon, Steve Schapiro, Mark Shaw, Edward Steichen or Martin Schoeller feature the Kennedys but also artists like Robert Frank, James Dean, Drew Barrymore, Jay-Z, Truman Capote, Marlon Brando, Pete Doherty, Jeremy Irons or Mike Tyson along with their animal friends.

The exhibition focuses especially on the staging of mankind and animal in the history of photography and society, the long tradition of First Pets at the White House, and furthermore on the spectacular zoo of the Kennedys, home to two pet celebrities: Caroline Kennedy´s pony Macaroni and the dog Pushinka – the offspring of the world-famous dog Strelka, which was sent to space and a present of Nikita Khrushchev.

The exhibition is complemented with numerous magazines from the 1960s, which stress how the image of the Kennedys as an idealized family was completed by dogs, cats, and a little pony.
