Ilit Azoulay, group exhibition, 6th Fotofestival Mannheim-Ludwigshafen-Heidelberg, Germany
July 9, 2015
Ilit Azoulay will take part in the 6th FotoFestical of Mannheim-Ludwigshafen-Heidelberg.
“The exhibition Places Precarious Fields installs, in museums and art venues, precarious fields of our society today and discusses them on the basis of chiefly contemporary photographic and video works.
In a blend of documentary and artistic works, of murals, projections, installations, showcase works, films and videos, a discursive climate that is also optically visible is to be generated, a climate that meets the requirements for dealing with these themes.
The exhibition deals with uprooting, delocalization, alienation, with high-tech production and social control, with real and virtual migration; with aggrandized self-images, highly-strung psyches, inordinate rapacity, with narcissism and loss of self-control, and finally with violence, surveillance and punishment. And, of course, communication and control through photographic images will likewise be a central focus of the project.
Ilit Azoulay will participate in the FotoFestival at the Mannheim Port-25 alongside the artist Dayanita Singh.
