FOTO/GRÁFICA: A New History of the Latin-American Photobook

Selection of book covers from the “Foto/Grafica” exhibit

The first stop in this traveling exhibition titled “Foto/Grafica: A New History of the Latin-American Photobook” was at Le Bal in Paris which ended in April 2012. After Paris, the exhibition will travel to Ivory Press in Madrid (June 5 – July 14, 2012), Aperture in New York (dates unknown) and the Museo del Libro y de la Lengua, in Buenos Aires, Argentina (dates unknown).

The exhibition presents 40 photobooks produced between 1921 and 2012. The set design will follow a path consisting of original books, vintage prints, projections, models and quotes.

Selection is based around six thematics:

  • History and propaganda
