Photography Residency in Murcia, Spain, 2015. Deadline: Dec. 12, 2014

Shoot baroque! or the culture of excess.

Photography program in Murcia, South East Spain.

——————- Spanish Version below / Versión en español abajo ——————-

Baroque is a form of artistic expression most commonly associated by its character of excess, but also being object of spectacle, virtuosity, commerciality, mythic proportions, and intertextuality.
The word ‘baroque’ does originate, after all, from the Romance languages, meaning “rough pearl” or “elaborate” when seeking the Latin root “roca”, meaning stone. Logic would dictate that baroque, and consequently the neo-baroque, are founded on the idea of creating something of a lasting and sculpted effect.
LA POSTIZA residency is based in Murcia, a city with a long old baroque tradition. Music, arquitecture, sculpure, literature and other manifestations are visible in its heritage. From the 16th century, and particularly the 18th century, onwards that Murcia achieved an urban splendour that lead to its expansion beyond the city walls. We would like to start from this point to build a contemporary photography project about the ‘culture of excess’ traditional influence in Society, even in hugely depressed environments, as a twentyfirst-century manifestation.

Residency starts
 10/01/2015
Residency ends 
10/04/2015
Deadline: 15/12/2014

——————- Spanish Version / Versión en español ——————-

Shoot baroque! o la cultura del exceso.

Programa de Fotografía en Murcia , sudeste de España.

El barroco es una forma de expresión artística más comúnmente asociada a su carácter de exceso, pero también objeto de espectáculo, virtuosismo, comercialidad, proporciones míticas  e intertextualidad .

La palabra ‘barroco’ procede de las lenguas romances , que significa “perla en bruto” o “elaborar” en la búsqueda de la raíz “roca” en latín significa piedra. La lógica dictaría que barroco, y en consecuencia, el neo – barroco, se funda en la idea de crear una especie de efecto duradero y esculpido.

LA POSTIZA  es una residencia ubicada en Murcia, una ciudad con una larga tradición barroca. Música, arquitectura , escultura , literatura y otras manifestaciones son visibles en su patrimonio. Desde el siglo 16, y en particular el siglo 18 , en adelante Murcia alcancza un esplendor urbano que conduce a su expansión más allá de las murallas de la ciudad.

Nos gustaría empezar desde este punto para comenzar a construir un proyecto de fotografía contemporánea sobre la ‘cultura del exceso ‘ tradicional influencia en la sociedad, incluso en entornos sumamente deprimidos, como una manifestación del siglo XXI .
