Utopia 2019

Utopia 2019

“To see and believe in the world, not as it is, but as it could be”
The theme relates to and associates with our own attractive pictures of reality, but “Utopia” relates primarily to the book of Thomas More from 1516 describing a fictional society located on a remote island in the Atlantic. The idea is also found, for example, in the fairytale world, for example in “The Wizard of Oz” that allows us to experience a golden road ahead. Religious movements such as “Jehovah’s Witnesses” give us colored images of the promised paradise on earth. In the ecological green movement, we have been able to see the beginning of a utopian world order, but in the debate about climate change, a more dystopic picture of the future is also raising.

In a significant narrative, Maria Llerena from Cuba tells about a framed portrait that was sitting at the office of her poor home in Havana. The portrait was a photograph of her father wearing a white sailor uniform. “I do not know why I loved him so much, but he was so beautiful in the picture. We never met him but he was the coolest father in the world … ” Her illusion was broken a few years later when she met him really and he turned out to be a completely different person.

How do we shape our thoughts and dreams?

Info om kommande Biennal 2019

Posted by | No Tags | Uncategorized | No Comments on Info om kommande Biennal 2019


Datum för Malmö Fotobiennal. 2019 upplaga är fastställd till den 1 till den 11 juni. Huvudtema är:

”UTOPIA” Att se och skildra världen, inte som den är, men som den kunde vara. 

I vanlig ordning bjuder vi gallerier, muséer och institutioner i regionen att ingå i biennalens program. Vi ser fram emot att inkludera fotografiutställningar, filmer och installationer i katalogen.

2019 inleder vi ett nära samarbete med Copenhagen Photo Festival. Vi anordnar ett gemensamt seminar med föreläsningar i båda städerna. Vi kurerar en ”open call” där internationella konstnärer och fotografer är välkomna att söka med egna verk. Är du gallerist och är intresserad av utbudet så kan vi se om där finns möjligheter att sammankoppla utvalda artister och ditt galleri. Som tidigare år producerar vi en karta, flyers och ett omfattande katalog med essäer och fotografier från varje fotograf och/eller utställning. Och du blir självklart inbjuden till vår invigningsfest!

Vill du redan nu anmäla ditt intresse att delta i nästa års biennal är du välkommen att höra av dig. Vi planerar även ha ett informationsmöte inom de närmaste veckorna där vi hoppas få träffa dig personligen.

”Utopia” kan ses som en introspektion av våra egna inre bilder. Redan 1516 skrev Thomas More boken ”Utopia” om ett fiktivt samhälle men vi kan även återkoppla den utopiska idéen i film och sagovärlden, som i ”The Wizard of Oz” som låter oss uppleva en gyllene väg framåt. Frikyrkliga broschyrer erbjuder oss färglagda bilder om det utlovade paradiset. Gröna vågen strävar efter en utopisk världsordning men en mer dystopisk bild av framtiden hägrar också.

Hur gestaltar vi våra inre tankar? Är Utopia en synvilla, en omöjlig dröm, en illusion? Vilka föreställningar skapar vi idag?

Posted by | No Tags | news | No Comments on Film screening at Panora


Film screening: Sunday June 18th 18:15

Director: Trisha Ziff | Mexico 2016 | 88 min | Spanish dialogue | English subtitles

Award-winning documentary about Mexican photographer Enrique Metinides, a man obsessed with photographing the accident, who discovered that the fate of others was his way of connecting to life. What is it about these photographs? When the image of the accident becomes the object of desire? Through the footsteps of Metinides and the work of the contemporary tabloid photographers we discover Mexico City through a narrative of crime scenes and accidents, while we are confronted by our own fascination with death, morbidity, rubbernecking through Metinides’ gaze.

Ticket price: 100 kr

The final count down has started. We are happy to welcome Moderna Malmö to the Biennal and to include the exhibition:”MALMÖ’S burning, an exhibition about revolt, dreams and passions, 1968-1988″ in the program.
Text by curators, Clemens Altgård and Ola Åstrand from Moderna museet website: (…) The aim of the exhibition Malmö’s Burning is to feature—in a deeply personal way—images of a city that has just disappeared before our eyes. With a number of important selected works forming the hub of a revolving remix of an era, we want to rekindle memories and feelings from a time that can seem paradoxically both far behind us and startlingly close. 

The exhibition Malmö’s Burning spans from the experimental and increasingly political 1960s to the 1980s, when new alternative cultures began to emerge just as the good years in terms of economic prosperity seemed to be over. Viewing that era from the perspective of today provides a new and alternative image of Malmö’s transformation through a remix of various cultural expressions, a blend of both visual art and other styles of the subcultures that have made lasting impressions on the city.
Participating artists.
Ninni Benediktson & Anne Nummila Rosengren, Art Bomba/Åke Dahlbom, Christian Cavallin, Stina Ebers, Leif Eriksson, Allan Friis, Pernilla Frykholm, Abelardo Gonzalez, Elisa Halvegård, Lars Hejll, Paulina Hårleman, Per Linde & Technicolor Poets, Lena Mattsson, Jessica Nilsson, Isabel Rayo, Maria Tomczak, Pepe Viñoles, Annika Wide, Jacques Zadig, Ola Åstrand.

Region Skåne and culture Skåne has granted us a contribution to our seminar with motivation: “Malmö Fotobiennal 2017” takes place in June and hosts a large number of photo-based exhibitions around Skåne as well as artist talks and film shows in a well-established collaboration with art institutions, galleries And academy. The overall theme “The Society of the Spectacle”is based on the artist and theorist Guy Debord’s book from 1967, one of our most up-to-date issues exploring photography roll in a media landscape and society in rapid and radical changes. It is about the relationship of the image to reality, credibility and digital manipulation, alternative facts and the future development of photography. The seminar taking place in Malmö during the photo biennial promoting communication and development of knowledge as well as the ability for critical thinking.
