Hangar announces the launch this Monday 20 April, 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 help photographers. 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.
All the details about the conditions are on hangar’s website.
