Our theme this week: Challenge
COVID-19 challenges us at every level, for it forces us to question our status quo, our way of living and our assumptions. This week, we will take the full measure of the upheaval through a selection of images from Magnum Photos based on a key theme: “challenge”.
Join us on Friday May 29 at 6.30 pm for a conversation about this week’s images with our guests Pauline Vermare, Cultural Director, Magnum Photos New York, and Philippe Stoll, Head of Research in Humanitarian Communication, ICRC.
Moderator: Pascal Hufschmid, Director, MICR
Production: Alessia Barbezat, Head of Communications and Public Relations, MICR
Conversation in French.

The life in my neighborhood, surrounded in soviet skyscrapers has always been quiet anonymous. Many neighbors left to the countryside to stay at their summer homes. I started to observe the ones who stayed. I have noticed this dog some time ago. Now he changed his outfit- seemingly to fit to the current situation. He takes a walk at least three times a day. Sometimes in the company of a women, sometimes in the company of a man. Moscow. RUSSIA. April 8, 2020.
