Helmhaus Zurich is showing the fifth in a series of exhibitions »Welt – Bilder« (World – Images) – a lively assemblage of up-to-the-minute, international photographs. There are eight positions, each an example of different worldviews. With its committed approach, the exhibition is an emotional roller-coaster, showing scenes ranging from drugged-up teenagers in California to the war in Afghanistan, from living situations in Cairo, Mumbai and Shanghai to portraits from the gay and lesbian scene in South Africa.
The participants are internationally renowned artists –Naoya Hatakeyama, Zanele Muholi and Tobias Zielony, renowned Swiss photographers Georg Aerni, Daniel Schwartz and Cécile Wick, plus newcomers Bieke Depoorter and Elisa Larvego. Our view of the world derives from the images that we see. What kind of pictorial worlds do these photographic artists show us – what world images do they convey tous?
Photographers: Georg Aerni, Bieke Depoorter, Naoya Hatakeyama, Elisa Larvego, Zanele Muholi, Daniel Schwartz, Cécile Wick, Tobias Zielony
