Anja Niedringhaus. At War
13 January 2012 until 16 March 2012 Deutsche Börse AG, The Cube, Eschborn
As of 13 January 2012, the exhibition “Anja Niedringhaus. At War” will be shown at Deutsche Börse’s corporate headquarters The Cube in Eschborn. Images by the photojournalist and Pulitzer Prize winner are regularly published on the front pages of newspapers and magazines. They shape the collective image of crisis areas visited by Anja Niedringhaus on behalf of the agency The Associated Press. Her photographic eye always puts people at the centre of her observations, thereby creating empathetic insights of the daily life of civilians, prisoners and soldiers, always also giving evidence of gestures of humanity and hope in the midst of conflict.
The exhibition was curated by Anne-Marie Beckmann and shows about 70 images created during the last ten years in Afghanistan, Gaza, Iraq and Libya.
The exhibition was conceived in cooperation with C/O Berlin, where some of the images were displayed in the autumn of 2011.
