NEXT TO HERE - YOUNG PHOTOGRAPHERS FROM NORTH AFRICA AND THE MIDDLE EAST

Opening Hours: Monday - Saturday 11:00 a.m. till 6:00 p.m

NEXT TO HERE is an exhibition by young photographers from North Africa and the Middle East taking documentary pictures. The 18 works exhibited were taken in Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt, Sudan, Jordan, Palestine, Lebanon, Iraq and the UAE. They are the result of 10 workshops given by the Goethe Institute and its partner organizations in the region, in 2013 and 2014.

The exhibition, a selection of 18 out of 74 works, represents narratives of the contemporary world. These works were developed recently “next to here”. They explore the landscapes of the cities and of nature, and they portray humans. What they all have in common is their determined interest in the true composition of the world surrounding us, and in the people living in it.

The exhibition will be shown in a series of cities of the Arab world in fall 2014.
