The Münchner Stadtmuseum presents a collection of images on industrial animal slaughter by the photographer and political activist K49814. 14 October 2016 until 15 Januar, 2017.
This collection of images by the photographer and political activist, who works under the pseudonym K49814, documents processes that take place out of the public eye. Her gentle black-and-white images, unlike some well-known photos that seek to shock the viewer, shun any kind of sensationalism.
“Atmen ohne Pause” (Breathing without pause) occupies a fascinating space where both the artist’s aesthetic sense and political agenda exert their influence. This exhibition, which primarily comprises photographs but also includes other formats such as a sound installation, looks at a variety of animals during different stages of the factory farming process.
K49814 does not see herself first and foremost as a photographer. To her, the medium of photography is just one possible way to tackle political themes. In fact, this is this self-taught photographer and activist’s first photographic work.
