My work on the spanish crisis part of a group exhibition in La Virreina, Barcelona.
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.
CURATORS: Alex Brahim, Manuel Segade
