PhotoIreland Festival 3rd Edition

PhotoIreland Festival 3rd Edition
Main Events 11 — 15 July
Migrations: Diaspora and Cultural Identity.

Migration is not only moving from one place to another, it is also a process of losing, rebuilding, defending and examining one’s own cultural identity. The photographic medium has always been at the forefront of investigating these phenomena, producing iconic images, recording moments of change, questioning cultural identity.

With this year’s theme we want to discuss and present issues related to Diasporas and Migration, their past and present impact on identity, culture and the imagination, place and space, emotion, politics and the complexity of transnational lives today.

The main exhibition, On Migration, will feature projects such as Dinu Li’s Mother of All Journeys, Max Becher’s & Andrea Robbins’ 770, Isabelle Pateer’s series Unsettled and Jean Revillard’s Sara on the Bridge, among others. We will also present a selection of book dummies such as Francisca Lopez’ Bandi Binder project & Gergely Laszlo’s Collective Man, providing the unique opportunity to see these projects at a work-in-progress phase. Other artists include Francesco Jodice, Anthony Luvera and Roger Eberhard.

Book & Magazines
Celebrating its second year, the Book & Magazine Fair (13-15 July) will offer two main exhibitions on the theme: Irène Attinger, head of the Maison de la Photographie Européenne’s Library, one of the world’s largest collections of its kind, will bring to Dublin a curated selection of photobooks.
