Becoming and Decaying.
The Goethe-Institut Namibia on 05 April 18:00 at the National Art Gallery of Namibia (NAGN) launches Die Stadt – Vom Werden und Vergehen The City – Becoming and Decaying; a photo exhibition that has travelled around the world and depicts human beings’ relationship with an environment that they created and in some cases destructed.

A group of photographers have travelled around the world and captured moments reflecting the tone and aspirations of people making and breaking an environment in pursuit of an achievement. Wealth, security and freedom is what everybody wants and everybody pursues in a city. Urbanisation is real and does not always provide what is desired, and so people alter their environment to meet their needs or develop a tolerance to accept what cannot be changed.
From the slums in Manila to the neon lights of Las Vegas and across the Atlantic to a bus terminal in Nigeria, Die Stadt is a diverse collection of photographs that embody the easily overlooked norm and isolates it in a frame to highlight its significance in humanity’s journey towards the future.
The exhibition runs until 28 April 2017.
