This catalogue accompanying the 2017 edition of MOMENTA | Biennale de l’image (the new name for Le Mois de la Photo à Montréal) explores the theme, What Does the Image Stand For?
Images are now so insidiously omnipresent that their nature has been obliterated.
Once, photographs were indicators of reality, but today? Now that images of the whole wide world are captured by everyone at every moment, what do images have to say?
By considering the content and meaning of fixed and moving images, the 38 artists and 6 authors in this volume invite readers to cast a critical eye at the testimonials on offer.
Including the work of Adel Abdessemed, Yto Barrada, Mircea Cantor, Camille Henrot, Zanele Muholi, and Taryn Simon, among many others.
Accompanies the exhibition, MOMENTA | Biennale de l’image 2017, 7 Sep – 15 Oct 2017, Montréal, Québec.
