The exhibition rejects the notion that war photography is a man’s business.

The exhibition “New Works” presents a selection of new acquisitions for the Art Collection Deutsche Börse. The presentation brings together works from different geographical regions in Europe, the USA, South Africa and Central America, and spans a temporal arc from the middle of the 20th century to the present. The artists shown deal with social and political issues; They draw attention to areas of social tension and draw attention to grievances. The far-reaching consequences of climate change or the diverse reasons for migration and flight find their way into the exhibition, as do questions about social justice or forms of political protest. In dealing with essential social challenges, the artists develop individual, yet universally readable visual languages that offer space for dialogue. The artists are: Mohammed Bourouissa , Alejandro Cartagena , Daniel Castro Garcia , Larry Clark , Anton Kusters , Susan Meiselas , Philip Montgomery , Anastasia Samoylova , Mikhael Subotzky and Patrick Waterhouse .

The exhibition brings together two very different personalities and artistic styles in photography, while simultaneously revealing a shared commitment to humanitarian causes, particularly those concerning women.
Both place social and political introspection at the heart of their artistic approach, which requires engagement, active listening and empathy. As the title suggests, several stories are hiding within each photo. In this exhibition, the two photographers tell the stories of different women visually, with strength and dignity, while subtly evoking the context in which the images were taken.
