Haus der Kulturen der Welt (House of World Cultures) presents the photo exhibition “On Borders” as their second cooperation with the photo acency “Ostkreuz”. The agency’s 18 photographer addressed various issues of the exhibition’s subject: borders can be territorial, but they also divide social spheres or can divide inner and outer boundaries. Borders can be visible and invisible, cross-social or individual.
Thus the reportages are very different, including the demilitarised zone between North and South Korea,the border between Catholics and Protestants in Belfast, Northern Ireland, the vanishing relicts of the Inner German border, the UN zone on Cyprus, and the activities of the EU border agency FRONTEX or the International Criminal Court (ICC). More than two years, the Ostkreuz members prepared this exhibition. An accompanying catalogue has been published by Hatje Cantz (296 pages, 160 pictures, 38,- €).
The 18 Ostkreuz photographers are:
