A weekend with a view

Look closely at what is happening.

Helena Lea Manhartsberger: IN BETWEEN STATES

In Mexico, thousands of people disappear on their way to the USA, and relatives never stop looking for them. On the Italian island of Lampedusa, tourists encounter hundreds of migrants. In Ukraine, people keep fighting for sovereignty; a fight that extends to borders that traverse the middle of society.
Innsbruck-based photographer Helena Lea Manhartsberger addresses global inequalities in three completely different regions. Her work sheds light on the brutality of existing structures of power and institutionalised racism; but also solidarity, hope and resistance of civil players. Manhartsberger tells the stories of individuals, without losing sight of the big picture.

Atlas of Globalisation. 

The Atlas of Globalisation by Le Monde diplomatique has been setting standards in journalistic cartography for 20 years. It represents a comprehensive and clear illustration of what globalisation means in the 21st century: for the freedom of movement of people and goods, for political participation, and for social progress. The current Atlas of Globalisation labelled “Ungleiche Welt” (Unequal World) is showcased as part of a collaboration between Journalismusfest with Le Monde Diplomatique / Berlin.

Martin Thür – My Collection. 

Martin Thür is anchorman of the Austrian news programme ZIB 2 and a zealous fan of Excel lists,. There is however a second passion, that he is less well-known for: collecting whimsical campaign gifts. On the occasion of the super election year 2024, he created an Excel list with his funniest and strangest campaign gifts. At this year’s Journalismusfest, he is going to open the doors to this selection in an exclusive exhibitions for the first time. Stop by to see highlights like an Erwin Pröll action figure, an ice scraper “against the social cold” and clothespins for solar-powered drying.

Atlas of Globalisation. 

The planet is at its limits, new viruses temporarily paralyse entire countries and the divide between rich and poor is growing. In 2003, Le Monde diplomatique published the first Atlas of Globalisation. It set the bar for journalistic cartography. A comprehensive and vivid collection containing over 200 innovative graphics shows what globalisation stands for in the 21st century: for the freedom of movement of people and goods, for political participation, for social progress and international communication from San Francisco to Kinshasa.
Eight editions and over 20 years later, this small exhibition is based on the current Atlas of Globalisation labelled “Ungleiche Welt” (Unequal World) and showcases different types of graphics in their up-to-date version. This exhibition was created for Journalismusfest 2023 and in collaboration with Le Monde diplomatique / Berlin. This year it will open its doors as an extended version.
