Welcome to the secret society II.

Natural histories, of animals and expeditions (for Joan Fontcuberta)

This session is designed to question the relations between humankind and nature, both with animals and natural space and other, unknown lands. The attraction of the unknown and the remote, of the incomprehensible yet familiar world of animals, addressed with tenderness or irony. A kind of tribute to the construction and destruction of myth, the disquiet and the charm in the work of photographer Joan Fontcuberta.

Attended by the programmer, Loïc Diaz Ronda, and Joan Fontcuberta.
