For the second year, Fantom has been entrusted with the curation of the Photography and Moving Images section of Arte Fiera Bologna, the modern, post-war, and contemporary art fair directed by Simone Menegoi. On the occasion of the 2020 edition, which took place from January 24-26th, we invited and selected 20 galleries featuring 36 international artists.
The Photography and Moving Images section combines the classical and traditional uses of these two forms, with an experimental approach aimed at the study and observation not only of the subjects represented, but also of the expressive means employed. Photography and video increasingly invade our daily life (both real and virtual), assuming a critically important role and creating an aesthetic, social, philosophical, and political elaboration of everything that surrounds us. They no longer merely record changes and mutations: they are essential agents of the transformation of the world and of our relationship with it.
