Visual Diary Girls in now at the Städtische Galerie Bietgheim-Bissingen (Germany)

Visual Diaries / Girls is a group exhibition curated by Florencia Serrot. The show documents and investigates a new breed of female photographers. Claiming their photography as a means of comprehending their own realities, the results, which can therefore be thought of in a sense as diaries, are nonetheless thrown open to public scrutiny, in particular online. The internet has provided free spaces for photographers to show their work, as well as less mediated access for viewers. The gatekeepers are fewer, and this license to expose what is most personal has meant a kind of disenthrallment, an emancipatory buzz, that can be seen resonating in the aesthetic itself.

Exhibiting artists are Sara Gomes (Portugal), Madi Ju (China), Helen Korpak (Finland), Manuela de Laborde (Mexico), Skye Parrott (USA), Olga Perevalova (Russia), Nuria Rius (Spain), Florencia Serrot (Argentina), Agnes Thor (Sweden), Sophie Van der Perre (Holland) and Harley Weir (UK).
