Bodies of Identities
After Rethinking Nature (2021), the curatorial team of the European Month of Photography (EMOP) has chosen the theme of Rethinking Identity for its 2023 edition.
This topical subject, which is broken down into various sub-themes, marks a continuity within the EMOP network in the current research of contemporary photography. More than ever, the role of photography and its diffusion on social networks in the construction and deconstruction of identities is crucial today. In this context, Casino Luxembourg will propose two exhibitions related to the general theme: Bodies of Identities and Tills by Raphaël Lecoquierre.
Bodies of Identities questions the complex issues of identity in our contemporary society. Today, questions of identity are posed in relation to equivocal, sometimes conflicting orientations, at the intersection of psychological, philosophical, biological, geographical, cultural and socio-political issues.
The works of some twenty artists face each other to discuss the relationships of subjectivity and social tensions in a world in crisis, while at the same time conjuring up the current hierarchies and politics of identity.
