Angelika Berndt in PEOPLE & CULTURES, Encounters in Africa

    From 24 May 2024 a selection of my work in Africa will be showing at the Pfalzmuseum in Forchheim, Germany.
    The exhibition, is about meeting the people, their relationships, way of living and working, and their relationship to the environment. Combining individual projects, the diversity of the work starts to come together to form a kind of cultural kaleidoscope. And, as the work progresses, contemporary themes such the conflict between tradition and modernity start to find their way into the discussions about the representation and represented.
    Specially designed for the Pfalzmuseum, the solo exhibition PEOPLE & CULTURES – Encounters in Africa, spreads over two rooms showing a wide selection of this diverse work.
    Since 2015 I have regularly visited different countries in the region, living in remote areas amongst locals to better understand their way of living, traditions and relationships. With the goal to learn about and understand the respective cultural influences and its impact on the people’s way of life, this work is about telling their stories with my photos.
