In autumn, KUNST HAUS WIEN is dedicating an extensive personal exhibition to the great American Magnum photographer Susan Meiselas in an Austrian premiere. Since the mid-1970s, Meiselas has been addressing the social and political upheavals in our society in her artistic work. Meiselas documents the role of women in the series "Prince Street", in which she accompanies young girls over 14 years in their becoming women. Meiselas became known for her work in the conflict zones of Central America in the 1970s and 1980s with her photographs of the Sandinista revolution in Nicaragua. One of her pioneering projects for documenting cultural and social memory is the Kurdistan Archive on the history of the Kurdish diaspora.
