Class Warfare in Philadelphia

Philadelphia, Pa.

September 8th- November 3rd

Experience It Here


The current economic hard times Philadelphians and other Americans are experiencing share many features with earlier times like the Great Depression. In other respects, today’s problems are very different. During the Depression era, there was great interest in discovering how the hard times affected real people, which led to the rise of programs such as The Farm Security Administration, whose Photo Department became famous for thousands of images that profoundly changed how Americans looked at themselves and at the poor in their midst.

This upcoming photography exhibition evoking today’s economic hard times will be a backdrop to a five-part series of educational programs called Class Warfare In Philadelphia, which is being held between September 8th and November 3rd. There will be an official opening for the exhibit as part of the September 8th Forum on Foreclosures being held at Moonstone Arts Center, 110A South 13th Street in Philadelphia. Topics of additional forums will include vacant land; public unions; financial institutions (a la “Inside Job”); community organizations involved in local class warfare; and a debate by candidates for Sheriff of Philadelphia.

With photographers Ashley Angert, Justyna Badach, Angelo Benedetto, Kevin Cook, Harvey Finkle, Harris Fogel, Michele Frentop, Mira Gohel, Celeste Hardester, Chris Hill, Eric Mencher, Kevin Monko, Caitlin Morris, Christopher Paquette, Maria Petrone, Stuart Rome, Sherry Ruczynski, Horry Rumph Jr., April Saul, Daniela Sessa, Ed Snyder, Phil Taylor and Ted Adams
