German Photography Exhibit
One of my friends invited me to visit a German Photography exhibit sponsored by The Goethe-Institut, Rogue Magazine and the Yuchengco Museum at RCBC Plaza, Makati city. The exhibit is titled "Zeitgeist Becomes Form: German Fashion Photography 1945-1955". The event showcases the 50-year transition and metamorphosis of German photography coming from their different and most reputable photographers. To give you just an idea, The Goethe-Institut is a German cultural institute and just like the Instituto Cervantes that upholds the Spanish language, it promotes German language and awareness around the world. And we have one here in the Philippines that is located in Makati as well.
The exhibit was held at the 2nd and 3rd floors of the Yuchengco museum. It was magnificently architectured and the arrangement of the set added up to the grandeur of the place. I was fascinated, apart from the pictures, by the different pieces of metal artwork displayed all over the exhibit area. I actually have some pictures below so it won’t be hard to visualize how they look like.
One of the policies of the museum is, strictly no cameras allowed and taking pictures or videos inside the museum is strictly prohibited. BUT hey!, thanks to Ms. Elma Abrina (Museum Programs Officer) for being so nice to us that she gave us the permission to take photos inside the museum, with a little regulation and some conditions, of course.
We spent almost two hours in the museum taking photos and enjoying the beauty of the place. I think we should somehow engage and be open to different countries’ culture and tradition because every nation has something to showcase and in our dynamic world today, we must learn how to adapt to different customs; that’s part of survival nowadays.
This German Photography experience was initiated on February 26 2009 and it will be available to the public until the 25th of April. Here are some photos I took from the exhibit. More photos on my multiply.
