Human Impact

With five different photographic perspectives, the exhibition presents crime scenes, emergency preparations, victims, relicts and causes of violence and exclusion, as well as the photographic construction of news.    

 

German Preppers and governmental precautions are displayed within the series of photos Black Swan by Hahn/Hartung as a threatening setting and oppressive perspective. David Farrell shows with Innocent Landscapes landscape sceneries that do not immediately hint to their existence as IRA crime scenes. Andrea Gjestvang depicts just a single One Day In History: the day on which hundreds of adolescents fell victim to the massacre of Utopia. She presents its victims as survivors that are visibly or invisibly marked for life. In Icons, Cortis and Sonderegger retake popular photographs of contemporary history to deconstruct intentionally milestones of our memory. Within Restricted Areas, Danila Tkachenko leads us to places preparing for war, as well as to those that seem to have delusively forgotten about it.
