PHoto ESPANA 2013
Posted on June 4, 2013 by Isabella Cecconi
Between June 5 and July 28, PHotoEspaña 2013, the XVI edition of the international festival of photography and visual arts, presents 74 exhibitions with works by 328 artists from 42 countries and an ample selection of public and professional activities. This year PHE13 delves into eroticism and explores the erotic vision without a body, directed towards the world around us. Conversely, it shows non-erotic photographic creation whose protagonist is the human body. The human being and images thereof have been instrumental in the fights for gender liberation and vindication, sexual orientation and the battle against discrimination. PHE will focus on these and other politics as well as in the artistic practices in which the body is a cultural ground. PHotoEspaña is one of the central international forums for photography. Each year the Festival attracts more than seven hundred thousand people and receives acclaim from prestigious critics, making it the most popular cultural event in Spain. The Festival is an exceptional occasion for discovering images, videos and installations created by outstanding national and international photographers and visual artists.
