'Walls Of Power' Photo Exhibition, Capa Center Budapest

'Walls Of Power' Photo Exhibition, Capa Center Budapest
Seen until 25 September. We tend to see European culture as open and inclusive. Nevertheless, in recent years, we have seen barriers rising all over the continent.

Building walls to protect a land is nothing new. We do not need to look back as far as Hadrian’s Wall; throughout our history there have been barriers splitting up the European landscape.

Through contemporary documentary photography, the exhibition investigates walls, fences, and their immediate surroundings; specifically, those erected by authorities and still standing today to prohibit people from either leaving or entering the European territory.

Although there are prime examples of walls of all sorts around the world—such as on the US-Mexican border, between the two Koreas, Israel and the West Bank, Pakistan and India, and South Ossetia, just to name a few—this selection concentrates on one continent, Europe.

The group photo exhibition differentiates three types of walls according to their purpose: Walls of Influence, Walls of Segregation, and Walls of Migration.

Opening hours:
Work days: from 11.00 – 19.00

Venue:

1065 Budapest, Nagymező u. 8.
