Lisbon is experiencing Experimenta, the Biennale dedicated to design, architecture and creativity, under the subject Useless in its 2011 edition. This event has a long tradition of reflecting on reality and society through different points of view, promoting creative interventions and new looks, through conferences, open talks, exhibitions and showrooms. And one of the exhibitions will be from Lomography!
A Lomography challenge on the topic “Useless” was presented during Super Pecha Kucha Night, an informal forum for creative projects, which was part of the Experimenta inaugural week. We even drew a La Sardina camera so someone on the audience could start shooting on the spot! You can see Useless from a myriad of perspectives and that’s what we want to show to the visitors of the Experimenta with our Lomographs.
The final exhibition in form of a LomoWall will be held at the Experimenta Lounging Space – Tribunal da Boa Hora – Largo da Boa Hora 13 – Lisbon (near Chiado). The opening is on November 5th (you’re invited!) and that’s also when winners will be announced and prizes awarded. Make sure you don’t miss it, but if you do, the exhibition will be up until November 27th.
And you can also take part with your Lomographs – show us your view on the theme through your camera!
Go look for useless objects, habits or people, or show us how some things can be useful for some and seem stupid to others! How about the best things in life, is hugging, smiling and having fun really that useful? Should it be? Surprise us and we will surprise you with 3 camera prizes! Send up to 12 pictures taken with any lomographic camera (10×15cm at 300 ppi) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’re in Portugal, visit us at one of our Embassies (Lisbon or Porto) and take a free camera to use for a week (just have to leave a deposit on the camera but you’ll get that back in the end). Yeah, no excuses.
