The Museum der Moderne Salzburg has been awarding a prize for photographic art every two years since 1983, sponsored by the Breicha family since 2007. Anna Jermolaewa is the winner of the Otto Breicha Prize 2021. A selection of her images will now be shown in Salzburg and placed in the context of works such as “Back to the Silk Routes”: In this video, she explores the fates of Bukharian Jews who emigrated from Uzbekistan and sell their wares at Vienna’s Naschmarkt. Jermolaewa asks what they miss about their homeland, travels to Samarkand for them and brings back footage of their places of longing. Themes such as memory, uprooting and new beginnings are made vivid in an unsentimental and detailed way.
