Photo Exhibition at the Stadtmuseum - FotoDoks: Past is now

By  Wednesday, 18.11.2015, 12:38    What's Happening

The Stadtmuseum Munich and the FotoDoks Festival of Contemporary Documentary Photography in Munich present a Photo exhibition with some very interesting topics, such as revisiting Seattle twenty years after the suicide of Curt Cobain, or photographs for a perpetual calender for the Slovenian President Borut Pahor. The exhibition is open until January 10, 2016.

In any today the yesterday remains perceptible – as a role model or formative influence, as a vague memory, a repetition or redefinition of something that has already been there before.

In dialogue with the partner region Ex-Yugoslavia (Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Slovenia) FotoDoks 2015 examines the status quo and the potential of the yesterday within the present. The documentary positions of this year's exhibition find various ways to explore the theme "Past is Now": they work with existing archives or create new ones; they go on a search for historical traces and reflect upon cultural stereotypes and musical myths; they look back on 25 years of German reunification and 20 years since the Dayton Peace Agreement which ended the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina. They question the promise of Europe and, as always with FotoDoks, the works reconsider the role of documentary photography and the media – and are not afraid to extend their documentary sensors to the areas of video and painting and put contemporary trends like the term "post-documentary" up for discussion.
