Deriving its theme from the “Interface” theme of the 2011 PHotoEspaña festival, Face Contact looks at the myriad registers of the human face as interpreted by photography. It sets aside the conventional category of “portrait” to assess the idea of photographing the face as if it were an anthropological occasion or semiotic act, rather than merely an artistic genre. Broaching this reframing of portraiture as sociology are photographers and artists such as Liliana Angulo, Ananké Asseff, Lauren Olney, Richard Lawrence, Jorge Brantmayer, Nancy Burson, Luis Camnitzer, Jeanette Chávez, Colectivo MR, Luc Fosther Diop, Eugenio Dittborn, Juan Downey, Hans-Peter Feldmann, Jérôme Fortin, Shadi Ghadirian, Simryn Gill, Shilpa Gupta, Mona Hatoum, José Iraola, Kan Xuan, Pedro Lemebel, Cristina Lucas, Dulce Pinzón, Liliana Porter, Libia Posada, Jorge Ribalta, Yoani Sánchez, Stephanie Sinclair, Dayanita Singh, Marta Soul, Remy Zaugg, Jarbas Lopes and Giselle Victoria.
