Christoph Drange travelled to Venezuela in early 2013. He focused his attention on the phenomena of a socialist society that retains several vestiges of capitalism and is characterised by a culture of inequality. His photographs show the encounter between the aspiration and reality of a socialist country, which actually isn´t one. „Hecho En Socialismo – Socialism Today in Venezuela“ is more than a documentary snapshot. It is primarily a reflection and self-questioning on the current potential of a socialist alternative in the face of an all consuming, global capitalism.




The photo book was presented at Frankfurter Buchmesse in 2015. Further book exhibitions includeInfo on Books, Berlin 2015, Friends with Books: Art Book Fair Berlin 2015 at Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin,  Miss Read: Berlin Art Book Festival 2016 at the Akademie der Künste, Vienna Photobook Festival 2016, Paris Photo 2016 at Grand Palais.
