New Visions. The Henie Onstad Triennial for Photography and New Media
Henie Onstad Art Center Høvikodden.
Opens February 21st
The title of the Triennial New Visions is taken from the Hungarian artist László Moholy-Nagy's manifesto A New Instrument of Vision. The exhibition is part of a major investment in photography initiated by the Art Center in 2017. The triennial is dedicated to the entire first floor to show works by 31 Norwegian and international photographers.
In the book Why Photography?, which accompanies the exhibition, curator Susanne Østby Sæther opens the text by quoting from the manifesto: "The illiterates of the future will be ignorant of the use of camera and pen alike." This is explained by the fact that photography today is fully integrated into our everyday communication. Moholy-Nagy's forecast has become our reality.
