Susan Meiselas: Mediation
US photographer Susan Meiselas has been addressing pressing social and political issues since the 1970s. Her work, a comprehensive show of which is now being presented in Austria for the first time, revolves around documenting wars, revolutions and humanitarian crises and exploring issues such as cultural identity and feminism. The solo exhibition at KUNST HAUS WIEN features Meiselas’ early series Carnival Strippers (1972–1975) and Prince Street Girls (1975–1992) as well as the installation Mediations (1978–1982) on the Nicaraguan revolution. Also showcased at the exhibition is her current series on women’s refuge shelters in the UK. A Room of Their Own (2015–2016) comprises photographs of the shelters as well as accounts by the residents themselves and some of their personal items.
