voodoo-Mounted by the Gods
Opening: 28.02.2005

In 1988 the Swiss reportage photographer Alberto Venzago met an influential voodoo priest while on a journey through West Africa. From then on for the next ten years Venzago travelled to Benin repeatedly in order to penetrate further into the mysterious world of African voodoo.
On the evening of the opening Alberto Venzago recounted his intense experiences during this trip, the pictures speak for themselves.
The exhibition was opened by Dr. Johann Bucher, the Swiss ambassador in Austria.
