From 18 September 2021 to 30 January 2022 the exhibition "Being Human" will be open at the Museum of San Domenico, an itinerary in the history of photography seen through the "female" gaze.
The exhibition offers a journey with 314 photographs that will accompany the visitor on a journey through the history of the twentieth century, and the evolution of the photographic visual language, with the testimonies of important photographers who, starting from the 1930s, have been able to grasp the moment of moments that will remain etched forever on the photographic surface.
The exhibition develops following three narrative strands. The first, from the Thirties to the Fifties, deals with the crucial themes of the great American economic crisis and the Wars, with photographers such as Dorothea Lange, Margareth Bourke-White, Berenice Abbott, Lee Miller.
The second covers the seventies and eighties, narrating the great social revolutions, the war in Vietnam, the advent of the consumer society, through the shots, to quote a few, by Annie Liebovitz and Diane Arbus.
The third is dedicated to the end of the twentieth century and the beginning of the twenty-first, and focuses on extra-Western cultures, feminism and other current issues. In this third part, photographers such as Silvia Camporesi, Zanele Muholi and Cao Fei appear.
