"EXPANDED PHOTOGRAPHY. Towards a collective reinvention": An Online Exhibition


You can now visit the photo exhibition EXPANDED PHOTOGRAPHY. Towards a Collective Reinvention with the works of the selected photographers that joined the open call. The call aimed to raise the questioning, the trial, the error, and the successes as a trigger in the individual creative processes that, as a whole, expand the photographic language.

The selected images try to reflect the vast diversity of production processes, concepts, aesthetic and technical proposals that today push the frontiers of photography. This diversity is also expressed in the origin of the works that range from family fears and stories, which function as triggers for the construction of images, as in the case of Joana Dionisio or Cristóbal Ascencio, to interventions and digital creations where music intervenes, as in the work of Sergey Poteryaev; the appropriation, combination, and distortion of satellite images of Raúl Kalesnik; the use of artificial intelligence by Max Van der Wal to process images or the disruptive use of the phone camera by Vanessa Poitena. These nine works invite us to reflect on our role as creators of images in a world where we continually see old paradigms disappear, and where it is necessary to rethink and reinvent our practice according to our realities.

Here's a message from Esteban Pastorino, curator of the exhibition, to all the participants:

First of all, we want to thank you for your participation. We have received images from 150 artists with a huge variety of both aesthetic and conceptual proposals, which has made the selection process not easy. The selection was made in a "blind" process where only the images and descriptions of the projects were considered, without the influence of the personal data of each author. The set of images chosen tries to represent, from a curatorial perspective, this diversity of ideas and creative processes, prioritizing those that best respond to the theme raised in the call. We want to thank you once again for being part of this project, and we hope to count on you in future calls.

Vote for your favorite artist for a chance to win a pack of B&W Kino Films: simply head to EXP.22 Experimental Photo Festival' Instagram profile and follow the instruction of the raffle. Good luck!
