Power & Play


The photography exhibition Power & Play will take place in the framework in the fifth edition of Summer of Photography. This year the main theme will be ‘gender’. The goal is to encourage debate on the position of men and women in our contemporary society.

Power & Play
The exhibition Power & Play in De Markten will bring the work of ten Central and Eastern European artists who focus on the theme of gender. Until recently, it was difficult to discover anything about the relationship between photography and feminism in Eastern Europe. Concepts such as feminism, liberation, and equality had a quite different interpretation under communism. Also during the political and socio-economic transformation after the fall of the Berlin Wall, little attention was paid to women’s position in society or to their participation in the changes. The following artists will focus on the theme ‘gender’:

Katarzyna Kozyra (1963 – PL)
Matei Bejenaru (1963 – RO)
Anetta Mona Chisa (1975 – RO)
Reinis Hofmanis (1985 – LV)
Eva Filovà (1968 – SK)
Lucia Tkacova (1977 – SK)
Dita Pepe (1973 – CZ)
Krisztina Erdei (1977 – HU)
Boryana Rossa (1972 – BG)
Pepa Hristova (1977 – BG)
