Antifotoperiodismo is an exhibition with very interesting and quality content that perfectly describes the idea of anti-photojournalism. We can define this term as that critical current towards photojournalism that has succeeded in some cases to “change” the becoming of the facts, or to denounce the business of photojournalism itself, even to end the myth of heroes photoreporteros or to show the use Of photography as a means to develop collective memory instead of trying to show a punctual reality.
The works presented are not intended to be mere objects of contemplation, but to circulate and to be transported to other spaces, places and institutions. Its ultimate purpose is to be debated by specific audiences. In short, this exhibition aspires to be an anti-exposure that transforms the room into a resource center for the closest users.
