TRUST at f/stop Festival of Photography in Leipzig. Curated by Susan Bright und Nina Strand
The 9th f/stop – Festival für Fotografie Leipzig responds to our new future with TRUST/vertrauen. Trust is central to the COVID 19 crisis, the Black Lives Matter revolution, the #metoo movement, fake news, elections, dealing with technology and equally in our personal lives. Trust, more than ever, is crucial to the way we conduct ourselves on both a personal and a societal level.
TRUST/vertrauen presents in its exhibition artists whose different ways of dealing with trust all invite us to think about trust, consensuality, artistic agency, computerised relationships, faith, the body and intimacy.
The main exhibition TRUST/vertrauen shows works from Hoda Afshar (IR/AUS), Viktoria Binschtok (GER), Ingrid Eggen (NOR), Paul Mpagi Sepuya (USA), Laure Prouvost (FRA), Carmen Winant (USA) and Guanyu Xu (CHN).
The curators Susan Bright und Nina Strand have curated a tightly conceived group show. This allows ‘slow looking’ by presenting large bodies of work by each artist.
