Danube Revisited – The Inge Morath Truck Project
Danube Revisited is a photographic road trip accompanied by a traveling exhibition in which nine female photographers will convert a 7.5T truck into a mobile gallery and drive it through ten countries along the Danube River from Germany to the Black Sea. The exhibition will feature the work of renowned Magnum photographer Inge Morath, who photographed life along the Danube before and after the fall of the Iron Curtain.

The nine photographers are :
Olivia Arthur,  Lurdes R. Basolí, Kathryn Cook, Mimi Chakarova, Claire Marti,n Jessica Dimmock, Emily Schiffer, Claudia Guadarrama and Ami Vitale. All Recipients of the Inge Morath Award, a grant given annually by the members of Magnum Photos to a female photographer under 30 years of age. We will retrace Morath’s journey along the Danube, producing new work, and promoting dialogue about documentary photography through night projections, artist talks, photography forums, and cultural exchange with institutions. With the river as a collective subject, we hope to connect with the region that meant so much to Inge Morath.

The Inge Morath Truck Project is scheduled to tour for 5 weeks, from the 5th July to the 11th August 2014. Starting at Donaueschingen, the source of the river in Germany, the truck will work its way along the river to the final destination, the Black Sea. Every other day the truck will stop at a new destination along the river, where a partner institution or organization will host the project, opening the truck gallery to the general public, exhibiting open-air night projections as well as engaging the public in a variety of photo forums. The participating photographers will photograph their own personal projects relating to the river and the region around these scheduled events.
