Evening photo screenings from Portugal

Curator — Rui Prata

The Panorama of Portuguese Contemporary Photography incorporates the most active artists and aims to highlight the current trends of photography in Portugal.
Once the universe of photography is expanded to a vast territory, becomes complex to establish a real narrative, among a vast number of authors. We established six distinct chapters we think have designed an understandable sequence with tangential connections whenever possible.
For several reasons the universe and of Portuguese photography market is extremely limited, either by the absence of a structured policy from the cultural institutions, or by a limited number of collectors, public or private.
“When preparing this audiovisual, we realized that there is a strong tendency towards the representation of the landscape and spaces that is evidenced in three chapters titled Anatomy’s landscape, Interior Places and Distant Horizons. We do not have an objective theory to explain this phenomenon, but there is probably a connection to the very location of the territory and the nature of being Portuguese”.
At Contemporary phantasies we put together a group of authors that approach the documentary in different strands that expand from the appropriation to the scouring of marginal lives.
Probabaly, on account cultural heritage, the feminist expression has always been rather timid in Portugal. At the time of the explosion of feminism in the late sixties, our country was under a regime of repression and the few creative attitudes were contained which even led to the emigration of some artists. In the chapter Borders of Genre we realize some of the most significant examples of this sort in our country.
