After covering photography in Spain and Latin-America, PHotoEspañais now in its nineteenth edition aiming to provide a wide view of European photography. A broad range of exhibitions from various specialists will be included in the artistic programme for the Festival with the purpose of analysing the concept of Europe and its evolution as a continent in social, geographic, political, economic or creative terms.
Exhibitions from french photographer Bernard Plossu, who was awarded the 2013 PHotoEspaña prize, will be included in the 2016 Festival of Photography and Visual Arts PHotoEspaña along with works by the Spanish photographer Linarejos Moreno. The theme of tensions generated on the European continent between 1979 and 1989 is covered by Chris Killip, Jean Marc Bustamante, Candida Höfer and Boris Mikhailov, among others in the group exhibition Transiciones (Transitions). On the other hand, the Migraciones (Migrations) exhibition focuses on migration and showcases works from the collections at the Musée Nicéphore Niépce along with contemporary artists including Peter Knapp, Mathieu Pernot, Antoine d’Agata and John Batho.
