In his first comprehensive photographic project, Danny Lyon documented the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s. Over half a century later, the protests around Black Lives Matter have shown just how deeply racism and white supremacy have pervaded all social and political structures. In a specially developed spoken word performance, Amina Abdulkadir and Henri-Michel Yéré will conjure the many voices that resonate in Lyon’s Message to the Future. The performance will take place in German and English.

Entrance fee 10 CHF / 8 CHF
