Each week one photograph - that was the idea and mode of the photographic interchange held between Simone Gilges from Berlin and Mamadou Gomis from Senegal's Capital Dakar. After meeting at the prêt-à-partager workshop, the two photographers have been exchanging one picture each week via internet since 2009. The photographs serve as a response and comment to the prior one sent - taken in the very unlike cities and addressing everyday life in the streets, rituals of public and private life and the artistic work of both photographers. The developed references bring the other side closer to one's own and respectively the familiar is made foreign.
Opening 4 April at 7pm at Goethe-Institut Ghana
