Time Out says

This exhibition brings together a selection of photographic works from the German-American Walther Collection. With more than a hundred images from some of the most renowned photographers, including August Sander, Richard Avedon and Seydou Keïta, and mixed with more contemporary artists such as Samuel Fosso, Zanele Muholi and Zhang Huan, the exhibition shows how photographers from different cultures and historical periods have used the power of portraiture to both affirm and question social stereotypes created around the issues of gender, social class and nationality. 'Structures of Identity' invites you to reflect on how portrait photography has evolved, and to visualise the political and cultural factors that shape individual and collective subjects, with a particular focus on the relationship between self-representation and social identity.
