Observing reality and repor-ting on it is no longer enough. One must question what one sees. The photographs by Matthias Bruggmann (Elysée Prize 2017) seem to tell us something about war. Their captions force us to look closer, not to stay with a first superficial, pre-formatted interpretation. They try to put these photographic moments in an often unsettling, much wider context. That’s what this is about, the vertigo one needs to feel to be conscious of the chaos which sur-rounds us. More than a window on the world, it’s the way we see it that is involved here.

An Act of Unspeakable Violence by Matthias Bruggmann is published by Éditions Xavier Barral.
