When this sign is on stop, the visitors are not allowed to enter the space.

Inside there is a video projection of a photograph by South African photojournalist Kevin Carter from 1993: A small, starving girl, and behind her a vulture is watching her and waiting. A voice tells the story how Kevin Carter received the Pulitzer Prize for photography (April 1994) for this image, and how three months later Carter killed himself at the age of 33.
