“ZOO – Zones Of Otherness”

MOMus-Thessaloniki Museum of Photography

Duration: 08-17/05

The complex world of the zoo is used as a theoretical starting point for the concept of the photography exhibition of 15 young artists from Northern Europe as part of this year’s #SKG Bridges Uprising Art & Culture Festival. The internal incompatibilities and tensions of the zoo, a place with a unique internal organizational logic, where animals from different parts of the world, each in a miniature of its natural surroundings, compose a supralocal allegory, forming a field of multiple emerging places and images, multiple intakes of identity and alterity. The chosen pieces, scattered around 15 sites in the city, in plain view, act as vehicles for the representation of those kinds of forms of identity and alterity in today’s urban space.
