Parallel to the World Press Photo exhibition, WestLicht is showing the current series Teens (In Their Rooms) by Viennese photographer Anna Breit (*1991) in the upper gallery.

For the project, the photographer, who lives in Vienna and Paris, portrayed young people on the threshold of adulthood - an adventurous phase of transition in which one begins to take one's life into one's own hands, in which many things happen for the first time and in which one emancipates oneself from the parental home, but at the same time is still stuck in the middle.

The portraits were created between 2019 and 2021. Breit approached her models, who are between 13 and 19 years old, on the street, met them through acquaintances and found them on social media channels and accompanied them for a while.

With the impressive portraits of individuals, each with their own characters, identities and life plans, Breit simultaneously delivers a portrait of a generation that in recent years has increasingly made itself heard as a political actor, is no longer willing to accept a "business as usual" and is engaged in a conflict with its elders about the future - whether in the field of climate or identity politics.
