Submissions on the Post-Photographic Condition for Montreal 2015. Deadline: Jan 6, 2014

Le Mois de la Photo à Montréal 2015 CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

CALL
Around the theme The Post-Photographic Condition proposed by Catalan curator and artist Joan Fontcuberta, Le Mois de la Photo à Montréal 2015 will explore the dramatic transformations the image has undergone due to the impact of the second digital revolution, in which the Internet and smartphones play a prominent role. It will feature works of artists who critically react to the massive presence of images and their absolute availability in our current visual culture.

THEME
The Post-Photographic Condition
We find ourselves at a crucial moment in the history of images. The proliferation of cameras and digital point-and-shoot devices, the incorporation of picture taking into cell phones, the Internet,
social networks, new surveillance techniques, the development of virtual reality mechanisms – all this and more is configuring a second digital revolution in which the identity of photography
must be rethought. Platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google, Flickr, YouTube, Wikipedia, eBay, and Blurb have become tools for experimentation and new creative processes.
Today, how can we define photographic quality? Is it possible to identify the photographic canon that is being created in the new vernacular spaces of the image?

The deadline for submissions for artists is January 6, 2014.
