Elisa Rusca is an Art historian, writer, and curator currently director of exhibitions and collections at the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum in Geneva. Her Alma Mater is Goldsmiths, University of London. She is editor and contributor for the Italian pages of Kunstbulletin.

From one crisis to the next, the images that make the news look the same. Yet the reality in the field is always more complex than its representation. How can we imagine a new form of humanitarian photography? Human. Kind presents 30 photographers from around the world, selected from the 3,000 applicants to the PrixPictet since its creation in 2008. Their works address major humanitarian issues,but in different ways. What these photographers have in common? The kindness oftheir perspective. The participants to this event will also be entitled to register a private guided tour by William A. Ewing and Elisa Rusca on November 4 (10 am -12 pm), limited number of participants.
