"Hardly any other genre of visual art addresses current issues as directly as video art and photography. The compendium 'Here we are Today. Das Bild der welt in Foto- und Videokunst', edited by Kathrin Baumstark, Franz Wilhelm Kaiser and Bernhard Maaz, shows works by renowned artists and their respective examination of social issues and problems.
The photo compendium 'Here we are Today. Das Bild der Welt in Foto- und Videokunst' (The image of the world in photo and video art) reveals facets of our world that get under the skin. Sometimes factual-documentary, sometimes emotional and highly explosive - characteristic positions of the artistic examination of the central questions of our globalized society are shown. It is about topics such as identity, crimes against peoples, capital, homeland and foreigners, as well as reflection on and dealing with history." (© Hirmer Verlag, 2019)
