In a context of audiovisual surplus, perhaps the problem is not only the saturation of images but also the homogenization of the visual torrent to which we are subjected.
For some time now we have been talking about our disconnection with images and our limitations for leisurely observation, but this disconnection brings with it new connections to be made. Today's media, contexts and technologies bring us closer to new languages; this proposal seeks to renew our relationship with images and open up their creative and representational forces.
Contrafotografía 11: Realismo Digital seeks an updated, dissident and committed documentary with the digitalized reality we inhabit, from intuition and clumsiness.
