A photo exhibition entitled “In Quest For” featuring the work of six emerging photographers from Addis Ababa, will be opened at the Goethe Institut on August 25.

There are many ways of capturing the world and presenting it through the frames in which they best fit to the society we share grounds with, and one of the best ways to do so is through the lenses, Photography at its best that is.

Are you a fan of photography?

Perhaps you would want to catch up along the emerging photographers with their unique ways of picturing out what’s around to reflect back for us to be part of the artistic era that’s taking place.

A photo exhibition entitled “In Quest For” featuring the work of six emerging photographers from Addis Ababa, will be opened at the Goethe Institut on August 25. The exhibition is a first visible outcome of a photography portfolio meeting held at the Goethe-Institut in June this year. The debut exhibition in this context presents photographs by Abel Assefa, Brook Getachew, Eyoeal Kefyalew, Meseret Argaw, Maheder Hailesellassie and Zelalem Gizachew.
The curator Katrin Peters-Klaphake developed the concept in close cooperation with the group from the selection of the work to its presentation. The title In Quest For speaks to notions of search and research, questions of identity, ideas of wandering and wondering.

The term signifies a space in which the photographers and their stories communicate with each other, where they find some shared questions, approaches and themes. The accompanying catalogue was created in collaboration with Sarah Bushra, who describes her artistic practice as a “hybrid of text and image”.

The exhibition will be shown from 26.08. – 30.09.2016
