Black Saturday - Exhibition

Aftermath of the Australian bushfires from February 7, 2009

The young Belgian photographer Caroline Pankert presents her latest work “Black Saturday – Aftermath of the Australian bushfires” from May 21 to June 25, 2010 at the “AusstellungsOrt Burjuar” in Berlin.

On Saturday 7th February 2009, southeast Australia was ravaged by the worst bushfires the country had ever seen. A series of raging infernos claimed 173 lives, as well as hundreds of casualties. On this day, entire country towns were wiped off the map.

But what about the people who survived the fires? How do they live now, having lost everything they owned? And why do people risk their lives in order to save their houses from burning?

Inspired by these questions, Caroline Pankert took a closer look at the aftermath of the fires in the southeast Australian town of Traralgon South and documented this photographically between April and May 2009.

The exhibition will be accompanied by interviews of the victims, held and written by the Australian journalist Melina Schamroth, as well as a slide show with photos taken by residents in the night of the fires and the days after.

Opening: May 20, 2010 from 7pm
Exhibition: May 21 to June 25, 2010
AusstellungsOrt Burjuar, Brunnenstrasse 188 – 190, 10119 Berlin (2. courty. right)
Opening hours: Mon – Thur 10 am – 6 pm, Fri 10 am – 4 pm, Sat & Sun closed
