Three True Stories


Three True Stories

Zanele Muholi, Ahlam Shibli, Mitra Tabrizian

Despite different origins, styles and themes the artists presented in this exhibition all share a firm belief: the photographic/video imagine is an extraordinary means by which to both discover and transform the world around us.

Zanele Muholi, a South African visual activist, employs photography and video to alter the common perception of the black lesbian community to which she belongs.
Through a rigorously documentary approach, Palestinian artist Ahlam Shibli evokes the particular relationship that her own people have with death.
The allegorical works of Mitra Tabrizian, an Iranian immigrant living in London, offer a reflection on the condition of the contemporary human being, embracing Eastern as much as Western points of view.

The exhibition tells the stories of artists who have made their sense of responsibility the mainstay of their visual research.
