IN TRANSIT – The View of the Other(s)
Posted on Oktober 13, 2012 by Julia Schiller
OPENING: Wednesday, 17.10.2012, 7 pm, Ostkreuz Berlin railway station, Sonntagstrasse/Markgrafendamm, 10245 Berlin
EXHIBITION: 18.10. – 30.11.2012
‘IN TRANSIT – The view of the Other(s)’ takes up the challenge of comprehending photography as a documentary, artistic and political description of the world and presenting it as a participatory project in a public in-transit room at the Ostkreuz Berlin railway station.
Curator Jaana Prüss (Morgengrün Kommunikation) situates ‘the view of the other’ in a discourse on our contemporary societies by drawing images by professional and art photographers into a ‘dialogue of views’ with images by fellow citizens, passers-by and visitors to the European Month of Photography Berlin (EMoP Berlin) who respond to an open call.
The exhibition presents perspectives on current social issues of change and transformation.
In its heterogeneity, it shows points of views on the individual and society, temporary solutions, commons, mobility, migration and flight, and questions the search for shelter and belonging, purpose, work and meaning, and new strategies for ‘surviving’.
Everyone is invited to participate actively and creatively (until 30.10.2012) via intransit (at) morgengruen.de.
