Bending the Frame
What do we want from this media revolution? Not just where is it bringing us, but where do we want to go?
The exhibition Bending the Frame focuses on documentary photography that seeks to make a difference and to set an agenda. Can photography tell us something new about the world we live in, the exhibition seems to ask.
Based on the American professor Fred Ritchin’s book Bending the Frame and in cooperation with him and the Danish photographer Tina Enghoff, Fotografisk
Center has curated an exhibition that focuses on current global issues such as war, migration, racism, climate change etc.
In Bending the Frame we show photography, video, film, books, and internet-based projects of international and Nordic photographers and visual artists. The exhibition includes both older and new works. The idea is to present strategies within visual art, documentary and journalistic photography, which convey other stories than the ones we often meet in conventional news media.
The exhibition is produced by Fotografisk Center in Copenhagen in collaboration with Preus museum. Curators: Fred Ritchin and Tina Enghoff. The exhibition was shown in Fotografisk Center 27.08 - 23.10.2016
