Reopening 08.12.2020 until 14.02.2021.
The Francisco Carolinum will present a retrospective of Roger Ballen’s work. Social misfits, animals, and enigmatic objects populate the eerily beautiful photographs of Roger Ballen. With his photographic stagings, which create a surreal-dark, eerie atmosphere, Roger Ballen delves deep into the abysses of the human psyche. He is one of the internationally most important and influential contemporary photographic artists. His life is centered in South Africa, and his work, as fascinating as it is disturbing, occupies a unique position in contemporary photography, situated somewhere between documentation and fiction.
