The Athens Photo Festival presents [Mis/Dis] Placed at the Benaki Museum until 31 July.

The Festival’s theme is aimed at investigating how collective consciousness and individual perception and position are shaped, in relation to the fast-changing global situation, intertwining both politics and poetics. In particular, it is interested in raising questions about the prevailing notions of place and memory as fundamental elements of identity formation while reassessing the role that the means of visualizing can play within these concepts.

This broad thematic framework attempts to bring together a range of different perspectives by emerging and established artists and photographers from all over the world, creating an intellectual space where the contradictions of today’s world can be raised and discussed.
