JR “Women Are Heroes” Exhibition

The French photographer, activist, and artist JR, born in 1983, ranks amongst the world’s leading artists of his genre. 
Starting on April 23, WOMEN ARE HEROES will be the first exhibition of JR’s works in Germany at the newly opened 
Gallery Springmann.Varol. 
WOMEN ARE HEROES is JR’s third project in the series 28 MILLIMÈTRES, after PORTRAIT OF A GENERATION and 
FACE 2 FACE. As was the case in his other works, WOMEN ARE HEROES also supports the causes of peace and humanitarianism. 
JR’s project pays tribute to the scores of women who are dealing with the effects of war, poverty, violence, and oppression on a daily basis. 
He meets them in the slums of Rio de Janeiro, Phnom Penh, Delhi, and Kibera/Kenya and with his camera, he captures 
their faces in moments of emotion. JR’s works document the personal histories of the people he photographs and his works in interior spaces – photographs and collages on various media – are already well-established and respected throughout the international contemporary art world.

 The exhibition 
will be open for viewing until May 30, 2010.
