Tomorrow will open a new exhibition in Barcelona that I am taking part of:
A cop d'ull. Recent Photographic Visual Culture in Barcelona
This exhibition draws together the photographic visual culture of the city of Barcelona over the last decade, not as a canon or a solution but rather as a venue for questions: Is it possible to speak of a visual identity in Barcelona? Is it possible to speak of a different perspective based on local photographic practice leading to a series of common and also differential representations?
Divided into thematic blocks, its journey alternates historically renowned figures and creators from recent generations, ranging from internationally acclaimed Catalan photographers to those who shape the image of everyday life in the city’s media, in a narrated series about the social uses of photography in the production of the imaginaries that make up the visual culture of Barcelona. It also includes a large quantity of media, ranging from analogue photography to digital manipulation, file montages and slideshows, and also explores every possible genre, from the photography of urban forms to fashion, including its uses in contemporary art, counter-photographic practice, portraiture and photojournalism. It is a choral portrait which also seeks to encourage debate, thinking and the production of public knowledge about the contemporary photographic sector.
Opening: Wednesday 4 December 2013, at 7.30 pm.
