Program 2016

Christian Lutz

Switzerland (1973)

no man’s land


The approach of the Geneva-based photographer is based on the meticulous observation of the dynamics of our society by studying such topics as political, economic and religious power. The recipient of many prizes, including the Grand Prix Images Vevey 2009/2010 for his series Tropical Gift, Lutz exhibits his work all over the world and is a regular feature in publications. The exhibition gathers together excerpts from several series of images that Christian Lutz has dedicated to the itineraries, dreams and illusions of migrants fleeing from the war, oppression and famine and for whom Western Europe represents the hope of a better life. As always, his perspective is uncompromising: by questioning visitors, he reminds them that Switzerland has always welcomed migrants, who have become key actors in the country’s economic and cultural development.
