Following years of research into Claudia Andujar’s extensive archive, the exhibition explores her extraordinary contribution to the art of photography and her major role as a human rights activist defending the Yanomami. Over 250 photographs, an audio-visual installation, films and a series of drawings by the Yanomami are brought together in The Curve, The Pit and the Barbican’s foyers to reflect the dual nature of Andujar’s career committed to both art and activism.
The exhibition is curated by Thyago Nogueira/Instituto Moreira Salles, Brazil, in partnership with Hutukara Associação Yanomami and Instituto Socioambiental, and supported by Survival International.
