In approximately 400 images, 56 Magnum° photographers take stock of the world in the decade after the Berlin Wall fell. Their photographic essays display a very involved, personal examination of our society. At the same time, they demonstrate the wide variety within contemporary documentary photography. In the exhibition, organized by the photography and press agency FOCUS and coordinated by C/O Berlin, the individual authors’ subjective and involved views combine to create an astonishing kaleidoscope of our world at the turn of the millennium. Photographs by Henri Cartier-Bresson and Martin Parr, by Josef Koudelka and James Nachtwey, by Raymond Depardon and Martine Franck can already be included in an inventory of our future cultural memory.
