In 2019, Brazilian photojournalist Sebastião Salgado was awarded the Peace Prize of the German Book Trade. On this occasion, the Munich Kunstfoyer is presenting the EXODUS exhibition starting from the July of 2020, the work with which Sebastião Salgado was advocating for peace and social justice long before he became known to the general public with the GENESIS project and the film “The Salt of the Earth” by Wim Wenders.
“Now, more than ever before, I believe that mankind is one single whole. There are differences in colour, language, culture and opportunity, but the feelings and relations among people are all similar. We have the key to mankind’s future in our own hands, but we must understand the present. These photographs show part of our present. We cannot afford to lock away”. – Sebastião Salgado.
