Medphoto Festival is a new initiative in the area of photography in Greece. The first Medphoto Festival will take place in Rethymno this summer (June-September), and will host a number of exhibitions and events, that present important works of Greek and foreign photographers.
Group Exhibition: “Alien Territory”, Twin Building inside the Fortezza Castle in Rethymno, Crete, Greece.
Curators: Yorgos Prinos, Pavlos Fysakis
Duration : 10 June – 15 July
Working on a more symbolic subject, this exhibition (inside the town castle) s the effort to research our internal state, the state of everyone living from the inside of the border, regardless of their descent, trying to find meaning in an uncertain era, an era of insecurity, crisis and increasing inequality. Alien Territory is the uncharted area of our familiar environment, where our own self is the stranger.
