HIT THE ROAD: Flâneur- New Urban Narratives
Piotrkowska street/ Rubinstein Passage
Fotofestiwal presents monographical exhibitions and group shows that address our theme. The artists represent eleven countries and three continents and the places they photographed cover the planet.
Our principal contemporary survey is “Road Trips”, eight artist’s installations that consider travel in both history and recent practice and combine a variety of techniques and technologies to express the experience of seeing a new place for the first time.
“Flâneur: New Urban Narratives” displays the results of three non-Polish photographs commissioned to explore Lodz and present their findings in an innovative outdoor installation. Current events force us to acknowledge that not all travel is pleasant, safe or by choice. “Displaced” features work by five artists and an activist organization that responds to the world refugee crisis with a rich photographic vocabulary that goes well beyond the images in the daily news.
