Delete - Selection and Censorship in Photojournalism

Share:

How do publishers, editors, authors and graphic designers influence a photographer’s work – and its impact on the viewer? What are the procedures that determine which images we get to see, and which ones we don’t? To explore these questions, reportages published in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s are juxtaposed not only with their original contact sheets, but also with images the photographers themselves chose for the museum’s collection – which often differ in content from those that were selected to go into print.

Historical works by Thomas Hoepker, Ryūichi Hirokawa, Günter Hildenhagen and Hanns-Jörg Andersare are supplemented with contemporary contributions by Sirah Foighel Brutmann and Eitan Efrat, with the aim of investigating both the selection process involved in media publications, and the considerable power of the media to shape public opinion.
