Human Impact
Sicherheit und Gesellschaft

26 October 2019 – 1 December 2019

Opening on Friday 25 October at 8 p.m.

in the context of f2 Fotofestivals Dortmund
(07/11 – 24/11/2019)

The German term »Innere Sicherheit« (internal security) describes protection against criminal acts, terror and similar threats to the general peace that emerge from within society.

Facing those internal threads both as individual and society, the exhibition intends to open a discussion that revolves around the question: how safe are we allowed to feel?

The presented works show recent and historic acts of terror and the traces they left in both landscape and people, individual attempts to prepare and act in case of emergency as well as architecture of war. Others works question photography itself as means of providing credible and fact-based information.

They convey impressions ranging from slight eerieness to pure horror.
