Until 30 June 2005. As part of PhotoEspaa 2005, Galera Helga de Alvear is hosting an exhibition of photos by James Casebere. Documenting the most recent religious wars between Christians, Muslims and Jews, Casebere takes an alternative view of their traditions with a healthy does of irony. The photographer mixes architectural scale models with photos of Taleban prisoners, the Afghan landscape and sequences of the US-led invasion of Iraq. In parallel to this, the artist introduces scenes from the Middle Ages, and highlights the co-existence of Christians, Muslims and Jews in Andalucia until 1492 (known as Al-Andalus when ruled by the Moors). Casebere uses this as a reference point for a different way of life an alternative to the present day clash of civilisations. Admission is free. Tue-Sat 11.00-14.00 and 16.30-20.30
