CONTINENT – In Search of Europe
The members of OSTKREUZ – Agentur der Fotografen explore the European present in their new joint project. In 22 positions, the photographers focus on various aspects of coexistence in Europe – personal, social and political phenomena.
With topics such as identity and security, renationalisation, migration and integration, democracy and freedom of opinion, they always find access to complex content through images of people and their surroundings. At the same time, they touch on sore points of this utopia of a cosmopolitan and international community called Europe. The various critical perspectives are always formulated from a very personal point of view, inviting reflection. CONTINENT offers fruitful impulses for the current debate on the future of Europe.
The exhibition on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the collective is curated by Ingo Taubhorn.
The exhibition is accompanied by a variety of digital offerings: podcast series with the OSTKREUZ photographers, text performances by Falk Richter, discussions with journalist Anja Maier and curatorial tours with Ingo Taubhorn.
