Moving Walls is a photographic exhibition series sponsored by the Open Society Institute. The series represents the transitional condition of open societies and the promotion and maintenance of democratic values. Nations often erect obstacles and barriers such as political oppression, economic instability, and racism. Yet, even as these walls are built, there are people committed to tearing them down. As the name of the exhibition series implies, Moving Walls is an artistic interpretation of this struggle.
The six photographers in Moving Walls 12 cover a range of subjects: entrenched poverty and discrimination in Europe and the United States, the path of diamonds from miner to consumer, an intimate view of the impact of stigma and violence, and the massive changes taking place in the new China. Yet each photographer confronts uncomfortable issues that strike at the heart of the open society mission and help elevate the role of documentary photography as an advocacy tool.
Moving Walls 12 features the work of:
Kike Arnal / In the Shadow of Power: Poverty in Washington, D.C.
Jodi Bieber / Survivors: Domestic Violence in South Africa
Donna DeCesare / Sharing Secrets: Childrenâ€™s Portraits Exposing Stigma
Nigel Dickinson / Beyond Borders: Roma Across Europe
