DOCfield Barcelona 2018


Barcelona’s Documentary Photography Festival staged its 6th edition with a reflection revolving around a theme that emerged from the anonymous assessments made by the attendees at the festival’s 2017 edition: loveas a platform for exploring the relations and origin of the links between people and communities; affection as a condition and its effects.

The DOCfield Barcelona programme included 7 exhibitions in the official section, articulated through the RUTA DOCfield route following a central geographical axis that crosses Barcelona from the Diagonal-Paseo de Gracia intersection to Colón and includes the following spaces: Palau Robert, University of Barcelona, FNAC Triangle, CC Pati Llimona and Barcelona’s Maritime Museum.

In addition, the proposal presented a wide-ranging programme staged around the entire city, with 16 guest venues, guided tours, free audiovisual screenings, the DOCfield PRO session for professionals from the fields of journalism, communication, culture and the third sector to encourage reflection and analysis on successful experiences in communication and in connecting with audiences, plus the 5th edition of the DOCfield Photobook Dummy Award Fundació Banc Sabadell.

The Palau Robert, the epicentre of this year’s festival, hosted three exhibitions: “Senior Love Triangle” by Isadora Kosefsky, “La huella familiar” (The Familiar Imprint) by Nancy Borowick, and “Family Portrait”, by several authors.

The event is organised by the Photographic Social Vision Foundation, a not-for-profit institution engaged in disseminating the social value of photojournalism. It is supported by the principal collaboration of the Banco Sabadell Foundation.

Sílvia Omedes, director of Photographic Social Vision, defines with these words an event which last year attracted 152,000 visitors: “DOCfield is a festival that questions, that propitiates reflection. What it aims for is to enhance the value of documentary photography so that citizens can have access to a set of contents that would otherwise not always reach the wider public”.
