About The Event

Everything Was Beautiful and Nothing Hurt

Learn about the recent work and current projects of Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin, London-based artists whose collaborative projects use the book form, photography, video, and installation art to explore political conflict, violence, and the ramifications of image making. Past exhibitions include shows at The Museum of Modern Art, Tate Britain, Tate Liverpool, The Gwagnju Biennale, the Stedelijk Museum, and New York’s International Center of Photography.  They won the ICP Infinity Award 2014 for their book Holy Bible, inspired by Bertolt Brecht’s annotated Bible, and the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize in 2013 for earlier, equally provocative undertakings.
