“The Post-Photographic Condition is characterised by the proliferation of images and the prominence of the Internet, smartphones and social networks. The world as we know it is now governed by instantaneity and subject to accelerated digital globalisation. Every facet of our lives, from personal relationships to economics, communications to politics, has been shaken to its core by this manipulation. For the first time, we are producers and consumers of images on an exponential scale. The outcome of this unprecedented excess is the immediate access to images. It remains to be seen to what extent this instant availability and universal voyeurism are both a privilege and an obstacle.”
In addition to his artistic work, Joan Fontcuberta (b. Barcelona, 1955) has carried out a multidisciplinary activity in the world of photography as a teacher, critic, historian, and exhibitions curator. He has been a visiting professor at different international institutions, such as Harvard University and Le Fresnoy, Centre National des Arts Contemporains. He has also taught on the Communication Faculty of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona.
