This exhibition explores spaces of sociality, identity and transformation in the contemporary world. Bringing together a selection of visual works made by visual anthropology students between 2008-10, the exhibition reveals the power of vision to convey knowledge of people and places, and their interactions in time. With visual media playing an increasingly central role in the modern world, the textual bias of the social sciences is under increasing pressure. Challenging this state of affairs, the exhibition offers an exploration of contemporary social issues through photography and film. It shows how visuality provides new and creative means for understanding and representing social life. Images by their very nature establish a different relationship between researchers, their interlocutors and audiences. Knowledge emerges thus in the collaboration between researchers and subjects, being further transformed and amplified by the interaction between audiences and images. The particular location of the exhibition encourages an intimate engagement with the works and visions exposed.
