The group exhibition we will have been young shows twelve young photographic positions from eight countries in Southeast Asia that deal with questions of youth, identity and the ambivalence of the future. As visual photo essays, they illuminate social phenomena in the context of economic progress and globalization in the photographers' home countries and also arouse awareness of longings and injustices within these realities.
The photo series shown were created during the Photography Masterclass 2016/17 in Penang, Malaysia under the direction of Jörg Brüggemann and Tobias Kruse of the OSTKREUZ - Agentur der Fotografen. After stops in Jakarta, Singapore, Manila and Kuala Lumpur, among others, we will have been young can now be seen for the first time in Germany at basis in Frankfurt.
