PHotoEspaña 2016


PHotoEspaña approached its 19th edition proposing an overview of European photography. The objective was to analyse the past and how the old continent is being configured in social, geographical, political, economic and creative terms.

The artistic programme was made up of 94 exhibitions with works from 330 artists, on display at the various festival venues: Madrid, Alcalá de Henares, Alcobendas, Lanzarote, Zaragoza, Murcia and Segovia.

The displays included monographic exhibitions by French photographer Bernard Plossu, winner of the 2013 PHotoEspaña Award, and Spanish artist Linarejos Moreno. There were also collective exhibitions, such as “Transitions”, in which photographers such as Chris Killip, Jean Marc Bustamante, Candida Höfer and Boris Mikhailov address the tensions on the continent between 1979 and 1989, and “Migrations”, a reflection on migratory movements that gathers works from the Musée Nicéphore Niépce alongside those of contemporary artists like Peter Knapp, Mathieu Pernot, Antoine d’Agata and John Batho.

Alongside this, PHE16 offered a wide range of activities such as seminars, competitions, workshops and night-time open-air screenings.

PHotoEspaña is an international photography and visual arts festival that began in 1998 with the clear aim of bringing the works of the best international photographers and visual artists to the public, as well as becoming a yearly event to act as a platform for young creators and a space for reflection and meeting in the field of photography.
