Photo exhibition – New beginnings
SLEEPING AND AWAKENING CITIES
This year, cities have faced an unprecedented period: an almost total halt to their activities, time suspended, confinement. Of course, from one country to another, this “lockdown” has been more or less strict, but for all of us, it has been a pivotal moment in our lives. Some populations, already fragile, experienced great difficulties in their daily lives and solidarity actions emerged to help those in need. Today, with the awakening of cities, all of us are looking at what brings us together, measuring even more the value of solidarity, wanting to make it stronger than before. Magnicity’s urban observatories in Rotterdam, Berlin, Paris, then Chicago and Philadelphia reopened, and for the teams, this reopening was a celebration full of meaning. And humanity. Thus, the local, international and online photo exhibition – on the Magnicity.com – is an opportunity to support solidarity actions: profits from the online sales of a selection of photographs will be donated to the international
organization Care and the sales on the Euromast gift shop will benefit JINC.
Today, we are celebrating the return to life, the New beginnings… The future of cities is a societal issue and we all have to participate in it so that it remains the symbol of living together in solidarity and humanity
Rotterdam photographers Claire Droppert, Iris van den Broek and Ossip van Duivenbode made beautiful pictures of the city in times of Covid-19. The exhibition on top of the Euromast is showing the empty streets during the “lockdown” on the one hand, and on the other hand it is showing the return to life – the new beginnings.
