Sarah Mei Herman — Museum for photography Photo Elysée

Group exhibition Dialogues on Humanity

On view from July 2023 until December 2025

A traveling exhibition that brings together 20 photographs by international artists. Work by Sarah Mei Herman is included. These photographs were not made in a humanitarian context but they resonate with themes that we have identified around the humanitarian principles (independence, humanity, impartiality, neutrality). This exhibition is made to travel around the world, to be shown in streets or cultural centres and reach people from different cultures and world views.

In close collaboration with the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), a branch of the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA), and in conversation with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), the exhibition Dialogues on Humanity represents a new way to open a dialogue on humanitarian principles through photography.

The exhibition will be launched in July 2023. The tour will travel the world until December 2025.
