Exhibition: Lisetta Carmi

Exhibition: Lisetta Carmi

Lisetta was born in 1924 in Genoa and she has much in common with that city: its level-headedness, for example, as well as a dry humour, a free spirit, and the marginal position that she continues to adopt although long since an illustrious figure on the contemporary scene. For the exhibition at foto-forum Bozen, five themes were selected that happen by chance to pertain to Carmi’s native city; and they happen also to reveal to us that this photographer left little to chance, when observing reality; rather, her work is the outcome of an exacting and conscious intent.

Exhibition: Laia Abril – On Abortion

Exhibition: Laia Abril – On Abortion

Today, safe and efficient means of abortion exist, yet 47,000 women die due to botched abortions, every year. Laia Abril’s project On Abortion documents and conceptualizes these dangers and damages caused by women’s lack of legal, safe and free access to abortion. As she weaves her net of questions around ethics and morality, Abril also creates a series of meditative visual and textual manifestations of the social triggers, stigmas, and taboos around abortion that have remained invisible until now.

Exhibition: Anouk Kruithof, Jules Spinatsch, Julian Röder – Chapter 3, The Control of Images

Exhibition: Anouk Kruithof, Jules Spinatsch, Julian Röder – Chapter 3, The Control of Images

For this third edition, we are dealing with the topic of control and surveillance, as well as with the critical observation of problematic social processes. In so doing, we are taking a critical look at to how great an extent we are monitored by surveillance cameras, via Internet, Google, etc. as we go about our day-to-day lives. Socially engaged photography can also make processes visible that significantly affect our social, economic and ecological actions, exposing injustices, mismanagement and secret machinations.
