LATEST STORIES

ATHENA

by Gabriele Micalizzi for The New York Times

Recent images from Athens have mostly shown violent protests in response to the austerity program Greece has adopted to solve its debt crisis. Less public is the city’s skyrocketing violent crime rate. According to police statistics, robberies almost doubled from 2008 to 2010; homicides are steadily increasing; and illegal immigrants continue to arrive, mostly from the Middle East, North Africa and the Indian subcontinent. Crimes by and against immigrants are on the rise, while right-wing groups like Golden Dawn clamor for the expulsion of all illegal immigrants. “Golden Dawn would never act illegally and attack a mosque,” says the group’s spokesman, Elias Panayiotaros. “But I’m sure the majority of Greeks aren’t saddened when something like that happens.”

 

EXHIBITIONS

KULTURHUSET STOCKHOLM
DETROIT: A SELF PORTRAIT
by Arianna Arcara & Luca Santese

Detroit: a self-portrait is an archive of hundreds of found images from the 1980s and 1990s, made when the decline of Detroit was beginning. They appear to have been taken by the Police or other state authorities as evidence of various crimes, accidents, suspects and victims, mostly in poor neighbourhoods. Abandoned to the heat, cold and damp the photos have begun to discolour and decay. In this condition they become traces of two historical moments, the first recorded by the photos as images, the second by the photos as fragile objects.

Arianna Arcara and Luca Santese´s work "Detroit: a Self-portrait/Found Photos 2009-2010" will be shown at the Stockholm kulturhuset from September 17th till November 20th.
