photo presentation, Fun Fair by Heinrich Zille.
Heinrich Zille (1858-1929) was a pioneer of social documentary photography and is often called the world's first "street photographer." Most famous for recording Berlin's contradictory vibrancy and precariousness at the beginning of the 20th century with a hand-held camera, he also captured the cultural idiosyncrasies of the times, for example in snapshots of Wild West shows as popular fairground attractions. The Goethe-Institut presents two of Zille's images, taken in 1897 and 1900, depicting "exotic" live displays of indigenous people. The photos are based on prints taken by Thomas Struth in 1985 from Zille's original glass plate negatives. Fun Fair is part of a Goethe-Institut Toronto series of investigations of "the Other", exploring how we identify and segregate ourselves, how we learn about and unlearn from each other.
The works are accompanied by a reading room that includes an exclusive essay on the fairground photos by Professor Gerald McMaster, OCADU, and an aesthetic appreciation of Zille's work by Jeff Wall and Roy Arden, as well as the ethnological documentary THE TRIBES OF COLOGNE by Anja Dreschke.
Talk and reception with Gerald McMaster & Deepali Dewan Fri 5 May, 6pm. FREE & open to the public.
Part of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival.

Mundialization: Student Art Exchange. In conjunction with the City of Burlington's Mundialization committee, the AGB presents a display of student artwork from St. Elizabeth Seton School in Burlington, and from Fujimidai School in our twin city of Itabashi, Japan. The definition of mundialization is the act of a city declaring itself a "world citizen" and being aware of global issues with a sense of shared rights and responsibilities. The concept involves the twinning of cities from around the world, in the belief that peaceful cooperation depends on mutual trust and appreciation among peoples of different nations, races, and cultures. Mundialization encourages citizen connections as a way of fostering world peace and global understanding. Burlington's twin cities are Itabashi, Japan and Apeldoorn, the Netherlands ... more
