The Exhibition introduces 21 artistic positions on the main social changes in our time. Topics are amongst others the current migration movements, effects of globalisation, digitalisation and the climate change plus new dynamics of economic and political crises. The long-range developments, their sources and consequences are publicly discussed often one-dimensional. That notice counts also for images in the news as for pictures in social media. The exhibited photobooks should lead the visitor towards new perspectives.
