Structures of Identity – Photography from The Walther Collection
29 June – 29 August

OPENING Thursday 28 June, 5.30pm

“In the exhibition Structures of Identity, Foam presents a selection of photographic works from The Walther Collection. Structures of Identity examines how photographers have used portraiture to affirm or challenge social stereotypes constructed around notions of race, gender, class, and nationality. Iconic works by photographers including August Sander, Richard Avedon and J.D. ‘Okhai Ojeikere are combined with the work of contemporary photographers such as Yto Barrada, Samuel Fosso, Zanele Muholi and Guy Tillim. Works of vernacular photography, from a range of cultures and historical periods, are also on view. ”
