Darkside II: Photographic Power and Violence, Disease and Death Photographed
WINTERTHUR  •  Fotomuseum Winterthur  •  Ongoing

Last year's exhibition Darkside I - Photographic Desire and Sexuality Photographed explored the role of photography in the imaging of sexuality and desire. Now, the sequel, Darkside II, looks at the opposite end of the bodily spectrum, charting the path from the body as a veritable 'picture of health' to the body injured, disfigured or mutilated, in decline and decay.

The exhibition includes works by photographers and artists, notaby: Antoine d'Agata, Christian Boltanski, Sophie Calle, Hans Danuser, Maria Friberg, Nan Goldin, F. Holland Day, Peter Hujar, Miyako Ishiuchi, Sally Mann, Enrique Metinides, Shirin Neshat, Gilles Peress, Walid Raad, Sophie Ristelhueber, Andres Serrano, Fazal Sheikh, Cindy Sherman, W. Eugene Smith, Weegee, Francesca Woodman etc.
