PARALLEL platform brings together 18 creative European organisations committed to promoting cross-cultural exchanges and mentorships, in order to set new standards in contemporary photography. Members include museums, galleries, festivals, art schools and publishers, from 16 countries, that will participate in selecting and hosting new artists and curators, organising exhibitions and promoting artistic networking. The large and diverse nature of the network ensures a wide geographical spread and a fertile ground for fostering new dialogues, sparking ideas and helping to boost creativity. PARALLEL is designed and led by and co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.

Acts of Disappearance brings together a group of artists who have in common the use of photography as a tool of action – beyond the medium in which they operate and the object on which they rely – to talk about transience and impermanence of landscape. An exhibition with a series of installation works where images are a celebration and a reflection about the “being forever on the alert”. The works of Morten Barker, Nuno Barroso, Emanuel Cederqvist, Ida Nissen, Joshua Phillips and Thomas Wynne are about redefining the gaze on reality, beyond the subjectivity of the human eye, underlining the impermanent, transitory and ephemeral nature of landscape in its extendable notion.” – Bruno Humberto, curator.
