Description

What is humanity? The Family of Man exhibition

What does all humanity have in common? This, no less, is the ambitious theme of The Family of Man. It is a famous and moving exhibition of photographs that has been on the UNESCO World Documentary Heritage list since 2003. It is a manifesto for peace between people. The exhibition consists of 503 pictures by 273 photographers from 68 countries, including Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, August Sander and Dorothea Lange. Curated by Edward Steichen and first displayed at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York in 1955, the exhibition has had its permanent home at Clervaux Castle since the 1990s.
