Haus der Photographie in Hamburg presents the exhibition ‘Family Affairs – Family in Contemporary Photography’ – scheduled for April 20 to July 4, 2021.
Family has been a key subject in photography ever since the medium was invented. With the upcoming exhibition ‘Family Affairs – Family in Contemporary Photography’, Hamburg’s Haus der Photographie (located in the Deichtorhallen exhibition centre) explores this topic through the eyes of more than 20 international photographers. Curated by Ingo Taubhorn, the showcase features contemporary projects that highlight not only a broad range of photographic approaches, but also the diversity of existing family and lifestyle models. As a result, established norms are thrown into question.
Among the represented artists are Katharina Bosse, Elinor Carucci and Vincent Ferrané, who shine a light on different forms of motherhood – while Nancy Borowick, Gustavo Germano, Dario Mitidieri, Lee-Ann Olwage and Akihito Yoshida address the absence and loss of family members.
