Foto-report about "Tuberculosis - a worldwide threat"
10.11.2012 - 16.12.2012 / Kunsthalle Faust

“Stop TB!” – with this title Kunsthalle Faust in cooperation with Stop TB Partnership is presenting a big photo selection of “Images to Stop Tuberculosis Photo Award” in Europe. According to the successful photo-report-project of Stop-TB-Partnership in Rio de Janeiro, works of five international well known photographers Jean Chung, Sailendra Kharel, Riccardo Venturi, David Rochkind and David Orr will be presented. For many years these photo journalists have been documenting worldwide the situation of Tuberculosis patients in a very committed way.

More than 50 photographic works and four big photo-stories as Multimedia-Presentations will be shown. The large-sized works clarify impressively the suffering but also the hope of people who are affected by Tuberculosis. In the exhibition unique pictures will be shown from different countries mainly affected by the illness – by name India, Nepal, Sudan and Brazil. The images of a Sudanese boy, who is lovingly looked after by his parents, or of a moribund patient in an Indian hospital, leave deep and lasting impressions. Other photographs show successfully treated patients and give an impressive example of every single ones will to hold on and the hope for healing in spite of severe sickness.

The photo exhibition is flanked by a prominent cast panel discussion and different workshops for teenager.
