CANCELLED: Who Did It Better in CCTV Cameras? – A Playful Championship

In view of the measures taken by the authorities due to the current developments in connection with the corona virus, this event will not take place. No events will take place on site at the Centre for Photography until further notice.

As part of the exhibition Street. Life Photography the final rounds of a playful tournament will take place: Curators turned sports commentators Ann-Christin Bertrand and Marco De Mutiis will present artistic projects that have been created using CCTV cameras. The works address questions of surveillance, voyeurism and control through the lens of photography and the camera. Bertrand and De Mutiis ultimately choose what they consider to be the most exciting and best work. Visitors play an important part in the process: They can cast their vote and decide who amongst the artist did it better in CCTV cameras!

The event takes place in English.

Admission: CHF 8 (plus admission to the exhibition)

For members: CHF 6 (including 20% discount and free admission to the exhibition)

Fleeting encounters in the streets of international metropolises calm suburban scenes, thriving thoroughfares, quirky everyday settings – street photography presents the diversity of our urban spaces and the people who live in them. The exhibition Street. Life. Photography and its five kaleidoscopically arranged sections with different thematic approaches offer a range of very different perspectives on city life and ways of photographing the street. In this exhibition, international contemporary photographers like Maciej Dakowicz, Loredana Nemes and Harri Pälviranta are contrasted with historical positions such as those of Diane Arbus, Lee Friedlander, William Klein, Harry Callahan and Lisette Model.
