While the effects of the pandemic are still present in our everyday life, the group show INSIDE - Home, Family and Community In This Transitional Time aims to remember the feelings and emotions we felt when it all started around a year ago.
Shot over the first months of the pandemic solely with mobile devices, the images presented in a circular narrative follows two main lines. The first one represents the documentation of what happened. A mosaic of life under the first global lockdown in human history. The second one delves deep into our inner feelings as human beings, exploring how that experience is changing our lives and our relationship with our home, family and community. When they intertwine, they serve as a source of inspiration to stimulate a constructive debate around the urgent answers we need to provide in the decade that just started.
As a special event during the opening weekend, we host the presentation of INSIDE, the second photobook published by PhMuseum that accompanies the exhibition and the whole project that started with the PhMuseum 2020 Mobile Photography Prize. The round-table will comprise Giuseppe Oliverio (PhMuseum Director) and Rocco Venezia (PhMuseum Curator).
The show will feature 35 main images, the photobook INSIDE, an installation with other 80 photographs and a video screening of all the images submitted to the 2020 open call.
