Dana Lixenberg: Imperial Courts 1993 – 2015

Budapest, Magyar Fotográfusok Háza (Mai Manó Ház), 25 May 2018 - 16 August 2018
In 1992, Dana Lixenberg visited the area of the Los Angeles riots and slowly formed a relationship with the residents of the Imperial Courts social housing project. Her patient and deliberate approach in Imperial Courts gave rise to an intense form of cooperation, resulting in captivating and intimate portraits that avoid social stereotyping.
Imperial Courts 1993-2015 is the outcome of a long-term photographic project undertaken by the Dutch photographer Dana Lixenberg. Lixenberg travelled to South Central L.A. for a magazine story on the aftermath of the riots that erupted following the acquittal of four white LAPD officers who were involved in the brutal beating of black motorist Rodney King. What she encountered inspired her to revisit the area, and ultimately led her to the community of Imperial Courts, a federal housing project in Watts, Los Angeles.
