20/20 Vision: Contemporary Indonesian Photography
Following a hugely successful exhibition of works by an Iraqi photographer (Over my Eyes: Stories of Iraq, 2018/19), we have introduced a new direction in the programme of the Jakopič Gallery to establish a non-Europocentric view of the contemporary world photography.
We thereby wish to stress the importance of seemingly marginal social communities, whose photography, however, boasts a production of the highest quality and wider social relevance. Looking from the Slovenian perspective, this is a very welcome position that cannot be understood as (post)colonial since Slavic photography has been equally marginal throughout history in relation to the Western production and the central forces in the development of the medium.
Based on a public call, a group of curators will choose the projects to best fit the topic of “community”, which allows a most plural array of responses. We believe that the selected photography projects will be able to provide a very diverse picture of the extremely heterogeneous Indonesian society, while also avoiding stereotypical outlines and stressing the role of photography as a tool of social commitment.
