But I'm Awake. Identity, Vulnerability and Empowerment.
Positions of Young Photography of the FUTURES Platform
Kampnagel / Vorhalle
Jarrestraße 20, 22303 Hamburg
An exhibition in cooperation with the Deichtorhallen Hamburg, the International Summer Festival, FUTURES European Photography Platform and the Triennial of Photography Hamburg.
Referring to this year's theme Currency, the International Summer Festival at Kampnagel together with the House of Photography / Deichtorhallen Hamburg shows works by young photographers who are part of the European platform for photography FUTURES and who deal with exclusion, belonging and empowerment from systems of oppression from different perspectives. They show vulnerability and strength, fear and joy, alienation and community and produce new images about queerness, Blackness or migrant and Eastern European identity. BUT I'M AWAKE refers to a state of vigilance in times of political and social crisis and to a productive subversion of existing power relations and dominant visual habits of seeing.
