THE CENSORED EXHIBITION 2020 – EXHIBITORS LIST
In March, the jury, consisting of Kristine Kern, director of Fotografisk Center, Alain Bieber, artistic director of NRW-Forum Düsseldorf and Ãngel Luis Gonzalez Fernandez, founder and CEO of PhotoIreland Festival, met through screens to agree on the exhibitors for The Censored Exhibition 2020.
The Censored Exhibition is a group show that seeks to present a contemporary selection of international fine art photography. The exhibition is part of the festival’s programme pillar Framing Vision, which focuses on the aesthetics and techniques of photographic expression.
After a successful Open Call, we received 389 online applications from 42 different countries. Among them were many exciting and interesting projects, in regard to format and topics, that could have been included in the exhibition.
In the course of the decision process, the jury collectively expressed the will to build a coherent exhibition, highlighting the fact that the world is experiencing a crisis in several ways, with a focus on nature and identity issues. They similarly chose to present less series in order to give a deeper understanding of specific projects. They were also concerned to reach a gender and geographical balance in their selection.
We are now proud to present the 13 photographers selected for The Censored Exhibition 2020, each responding to a theme:
