Juhan Kuus in Tampere City Gallery Laikku
05.01.2019 — 27.01.2019 at 9.00 - 21.00
In cooperation with Tampere City we present for the fist time the works of Juhan Kuus in Nordic Countries. “The Measure of Humanity” exhibition is a retrospective photo exhibition of a man with Estonian origin – the internationally recognized South African documentary photographer Juhan Kuus.
The exhibition gives a compact yet lucid overview of Juhan Kuus’s photographic career, in which the period of 1986 – 1999 plays the central role. During this period Juhan Kuus worked as a correspondent in South Africa for a French photo agency, Sipa Press. This period also shows his best work about the apartheid regime, the fight against the regime and the release of Nelson Mandela and his way to become the president of South Africa.
This exhibition is made possible thanks to the support of the Tampere City, Kultuurkapital, Art Museum of Estonia and Sipa Press.
