A Berlin Photographer’s Experiences of Karachi
Wednesday, 26th Nov 2008 | 7:00 pm
Christina Zueck studied photography and art theory in Arles, New York, and Karlsruhe. She has been exhibiting her work internationally since 1996. In September 2001, Christina travelled to Karachi to work on a photo project. A few days later, the 9/11 attacks happened …
Christina wonders what happened to Karachi, the city that has been named “the epicentre of terror” by a German newspaper. How do people get by in a city where a new form of war has been imposed upon them, a war that is partly invisible, and that invades the psychic realm of human beings?
Christina Zueck came back to Karachi this year to find answers to her questions. She has been commissioned by Akademie der Kuenste in Berlin to produce a photo series for the exhibition, Embedded Art – Art in the Name of Security, scheduled for January 2009. She has been taking photos for two months and will share her digital “sketch snapshots” and talk about her experiences in Karachi.
