30 years in 30 photos

An exhibition presenting the 30 World Press Photo of the Year winners from 1988 - 2018.

2 June - 15 September 2018 at the Caen Memorial | Exhibition opening evening: Friday 1 June at 17.00

The Caen Memorial celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, an opportunity to host a unique exhibition, in partnership with the World Press Photo Foundation. For the first time, the World Press Photo of the Year winners from the last 30 years are being presented together in one exhibition.

Each year for over 60 years, the World Press Photo Foundation has organized a prestigious professional photography contest, which rewards the best images by photographers from around the world.

The competition awards the work of professionals who use their creativity and talent to grasp or represent an event or topic that has marked the journalistic news of the year, through various categories such as contemporary issues (social, cultural or political) affecting individuals or societies, sport and the environment.

This exhibition allows the public to discover photos that recount news and history, highlighting the importance of these testimonials, and explaining under which circumstances these images were taken and, finally, why they were selected.

Temporary exhibition - Heinous cartoons

Private collection Arthur Langerman - until 22 april 2018

Arthur Langerman, a collector of documents on anti-Semitism, was born in Antwerp in 1942. In March 1944, his family was deported to Auschwitz. After the war, he reunited with his mother.
Like many of his contemporaries, it is in 1961, at the time of Eichmann’s trial, that he took the full measure of the horror of the Holocaust. It was from that moment that he started putting together a collection of 7,000 documents, posters, newspapers or artifacts on the theme of anti-Semitism.
The exhibition “1886 - 1945, Heinous cartoons or the anti-Semitic corrosion in Europe” showcases part of this exceptional collection.
Over 120 documents and artifacts – French, German, Russian,
Ukrainian and Hungarian posters; postcards; newspaper headlines; children or adult books; newspapers, leaflets- are displayed in order to understand anti-Semitism, from Drumont to Shoah in Europe.
