Event Information

Young photographic positions from Southeast Asia
The group exhibition 'we will have been young' shows twelve young photographic positions from eight countries in Southeast Asia that deal with questions of youth, identity and the ambivalence of the future. As visual photo essays, they illuminate social phenomena in the context of economic progress and globalization in the photographers‘ home countries and also arouse awareness of longings and injustices within these realities.
The photo series shown were created during the Photography Masterclass 2016/17 in Penang, Malaysia under the direction of Jörg Brüggemann and Tobias Kruse of the OSTKREUZ - Agentur der Fotografen. Initiative for the exhibition was given by Goethe-Institute Malaysia. After stops in Jakarta, Singapore, Manila, Kuala Lumpur, Germany and Hanoi we will have been young can now be seen in Ho-Chi-Minh-City.

Junge fotografische Positionen aus Südostasien
Die Gruppenausstellung 'we will have been young' zeigt zwölf junge fotografische Positionen aus acht Ländern Südostasiens (Indonesien, Kambodscha, Malaysia, Myanmar, den Philippinen, Singapur, Thailand und Vietnam), die sich mit Fragen der Jugend, Identität und der Ambivalenz von Zukunft auseinandersetzen.
Als visuelle Fotoessays beleuchten sie gesellschaftliche Phänomene im Kontext des ökonomischen Fortschritts und der Globalisierung in den Heimatländern der Fotograf*innen und sensibilisieren außerdem für Sehnsüchte und Missstände innerhalb dieser Realitäten.
Die gezeigten Fotoserien sind im Rahmen der Photography Masterclass 2016/17 in Penang, Malaysia unter der Leitung von Jörg Brüggemann und Tobias Kruse der OSTKREUZ - Agentur der Fotografen entstanden. Die Initiative zur Ausstellung gab das Goethe-Institut Malaysia. Nach Stationen, u.a. in Jakarta, Singapur, Manila, Kuala Lumpur, Deutschland und Hanoi, ist we will have been young jetzt auch in Ho-Chi-Minh-Stadt zu sehen.
