Claudia Andujar: The Yanomami Struggle
October 17, 2020 - February 7, 2021
Triennale Milano:
Viale Alemagna 6,
20121 Milano

The Yanomami, an indigenous group that lives on the border between Venezuela and Brazil, existed in near complete isolation until the early 20th century, when deforestation and climate change set in, threatening their numbers. Swiss-born Brazilian photographer Claudia Andujar, 89, has spent more than five decades photographing them. More than 300 pictures, a series of Yanomami drawings, and a movie comprise this retrospective (presented in partnership with Fondation Cartier) which shows how Andujar sees the Yanomami: As people. She employs techniques including double and long exposure or colored filters to convey their experience and encourage political activism.
