Living in History
2019-07-05 - 2019-09-22
An important exhibition of photographs covering 21st Century events documented by the new-wave of frontline photojournalists, July 5 – September 22, 2019. Although the glory days of publishing history-making events in LIFE magazine are long gone, there is a new generation of photojournalists dedicated to recording history as we live it. Looking at the pictorial documentation of such extraordinary events we often get the impression that we are feeling the pulse of history more intensively than at other times. Remarkably, at the same time the press is under attack as never before in history. Reporters Sans Frontières, or Reporters Without Borders, dropped the U.S. to No. 48 out of 180 on its 2019 annual World Press Freedom Index, three notches lower than its place last year. The move downgrades the country from a "satisfactory" place to work freely to a "problematic" one for journalists.
