Hangar launches this Monday 20 April 2020, of a photographic mission open to artists confined in Europe, on the theme “the world within”. Selected photographers will be exhibited during PhotoBrussels Festival 05.
Mission: experiencing confinement
The vast majority of the European continent is undergoing extraordinary circumstances of deprivation of freedom and enduring unforeseen hardship. The photographic mission consists in creating a new series of images telling something about the experience of confinement.
The objective is to see how artists can present their vision of “the world within” through a positive lens, bursting the quarantine universe. This capsule of confinement natures the seeds of human resilience. Creativity, empathy, love, reflection, sense of humor and the inspiration of nature: proven principles that boost our immune response, a speedy recovery, and may lead us to a better world “after”.
This venture is also designed to support photographers by offering them high visibility (exhibition, publication, traveling exhibition, etc.). Also, a total fund of 30 000€ will be shared between the selected photographers and the winner of the “Coup de coeur Leica” will be granted a Leica Q2 (value: 4 990€).
The jury is composed of European experts in photography.
The jury is composed of European experts in photography: Giovanna Calvenzi, Photo editor, Italy. Christian Caujolle, Writer, curator and art critic, France. Rodolphe de Spoelberch, Founder of Hangar, Belgium. Delphine Dumont, Director of Hangar and founder of PhotoBrussels Festival, Belgium. Gaëlle Gouinguene, Communication, PR and cultural projects manager of Leica Camera, France.
