European Photography 2023

Exhibitions, installations, conferences, meetings, workshops, showings and performances. In various locations. Inaugural days: April 28-30, May 1.

April 28 - June 11, 2023

Reggio Emilia has been a town of photography for years thanks to the importance achieved by the festival born in 2006, whose genesis was stimulated by the work of the well-known Reggio Emilia photographer Luigi Ghirri.

This edition focuses on the complex current situation of Europe, to outline the roots of an individual and social identity that is constantly questioned. Starting from a reflection on the idea of ​​Europe and its ideals, with the theme "Europe matters: visions of a restless identity", the exhibitions bring to light questions on the current condition of the multicultural and globalized world we live in, a world in which Europe no longer exercises the spiritual and material hegemony that has been recognized for centuries. The artists trace, through the photographic medium, the dynamic and uncertain lines of an increasingly mobile and porous identity with the aim of giving meaning to the restlessness running through it.


Inaugural days: April 28-30 and May 1, 2023.
