Curated by Seda Yildiz, as part of the Parallel Platform, co-funded by the Creative Europe programme. The exhibition explored and questioned how imagery is produced, operated and consumed today. Through digital environments and extensive use of the internet, the photographic medium and its definition has gone through a fundamental change in the 21st century; and relatedly parameters of artistic production and its reception has changed. In response to such transitory state, this exhibition was an attempt to examine photography, focusing on its materiality and the process behind: poetics and politics of image making.
This exhibition featured new works by three international, and one Irish, artists selected who experimented with various forms of production and display methods: Cihad Caner, Dries Lips, Róisín White, and Jessica Wolfelsperger.
The catalogue contains a manifesto, and commissioned texts by Natasha Christia and Mahan Moalemi.
