Universal Archive. The Condition of the Document and the Modern Photographic Utopia

30 to 25 Oct. 2008

Guided tour by the curator, Jorge Ribalta

The building of a universal visual archive has long been the historic mission of photography. Does the abandonment of realism in current debates about digital photography or post-photography mean the liquidation of this utopia? Is the photographic document just another anachronism of modernity? The development of this debate and its consequences is the aim of the exhibition Universal Archive. The Condition of the Document and the Modern Photographic Utopia, which brings together hundreds of photographs and documents, from the 'photointerpretations' of Lewis Hune in the early 20th century, to a series of today's works commissioned by the MACBA to various contemporary photographers.
