Under the title Here We Are Today, the Bucerius Kunst Forum is presenting paradigmatic positions in the artistic engagement with central issues of our globalised society, among them identity, crimes against ethnic groups, capitalism, homeland and migration, and reflections on coming to terms with history.
Of all visual art genres, video art and photography are able to address these current social discourses most directly, which is why this show focuses on these two media. Featured are exemplary works by Zarina Bhimji, Johanna Diehl, Samuel Fosso, Andreas Gursky, Pieter Hugo, Bertram Kober, Herlinde Koelbl, Eva Leitolf, Shirin Neshat, Marcel Odenbach, Erkan Özgen, Trevor Paglen, Peter Piller, Hito Steyerl and Tobias Zielony.
