Chosen Family - Less Alone Together
Family means (elective) kinship and blood ties, but it may also mean a lifelong sense of connection and, in the best-case scenario, a slice of home. Having things in common is an important part of family – and yet has nothing to do with it. ‘Chosen Family’ presents contemporary photographers who tackle family histories and configurations in a variety of ways. The works and the accompanying texts tell of the idiosyncrasies, passions, and shortcomings of family constellations, challenging our traditional notions of family and clearly showing that family is always individual. With contributions by Nan Goldin, Larry Clark, Aarati Akkapeddi, Seiichi Furuya, Diana Markosian, and more.
