BETTINA VON ZWEHL: SETTING MEMORY, SIGMUND FREUD MUSEUM VIENNA 7 OCTOBER 2016 - 21 JANUARY 2017
Photographs from von Zwehl's series documenting Anna Freud's personal belongings in London afford insights into past life-worlds - visual reminiscences returned to their place of origin that depict the setting of the early history of pedagogy and child analysis in `Red Vienna' of the 1920's. The installation Sospiri (Sighs) stages experiences of loss and mourning: von Zwehl combines personal traces of life and memory in an unembellished photographic memory record.

SAMUEL FOSSO : MADE YOU LOOK, DANDYISM AND BLACK MASCULINITY. THE PHOTOGRAPHERS' GALLERY, 15 JULY - 25 SEPTEMBER 2016.
Made You Look explores dandyism as radical personal politics, a willed flamboyance that flies in the face of conventional constructions of the black masculine. It proposes that the black ‘dandy’, with his extravagant emphasis on dress foregrounds a hyper-visible identity which counters the heighted vulnerability, the result of a charged history of objectification. In the context of this exhibition, dandyism isn’t simply about sharp dressing but rather, consciously problematising ideas of male identity through dress or deportment that is arresting, provocative, louche, camp and gloriously assertive.
The exhibition is curated by Ekow Eshun and features works from the Larry Dunstan Archive, Liz Johnson Artur, Samuel Fosso, Hassan Hajjaj , Colin Jones, Isaac Julien, Kristin-Lee Moolman, Jeffrey Henson Scales and Malick Sidibé.
