In eleven work series and a huge wall installation, the exhibition Life in Cities tells us about life in megacities. About overpopulation, mass consumption, privacy and voyeurism.
Michael Wolf has gone to Hong Kong, Tokyo, Chicago and Paris and captured the conditions of an existence in a megacity: huge apartment blocks, faces with masks that protect against smog, people sitting at their computers at night.
The two-time winner of the World Press Photo Award documents the constantly changing world, the overproduction and mass in which the individual still exists but threatens to disappear. Wolf’s photographs are urban reflections of enormous size and many details, of architecture and inhabitants. The monumental nature of Wolf's photographs makes their inner vulnerability visible.
