Roger Ballen

Visitors to MGA will remember Roger Ballen's 2009 exhibition Brutal, tender, human, animal as one of the most the compelling and confronting exhibitions seen at the gallery.

A survey of Ballen's work is now on show at the Münchner Stadtmuseum in Munich until the end of February 2011 Munich.

Roger Ballen Photography 1969 - 2009 includes works from his series Boyhood as well as previously unpublished photographs taken during the years 1969-1973. Also included are works from Boarding House published in 2009, Outland (2001), Shadow Chamber (2005) and the series Asylum which is exhibited at the M√ľnchner Stadtmuseum for the very first time.
