PhotoIreland Festival 2012
Migrations: Diaspora and Cultural Identity.

Migration is not only moving from one place to another, it is also a process of losing, rebuilding, defending and examining one's own cultural identity. The photographic medium has always been at the forefront of investigating these phenomena, producing iconic images, recording moments of change, questioning cultural identity.

With this year's theme we want to discuss and present issues related to Diasporas and Migration, their past and present impact on identity, culture and the imagination, place and space, emotion, politics and the complexity of transnational lives today.

The main exhibition, On Migration, will feature projects such as Dinu Li's Mother of All Journeys, Max Becher's & Andrea Robbins' 770, Isabelle Pateer's series Unsettled and Jean Revillard's Sara on the Bridge, among others. We will also present a selection of book dummies such as Francisca Lopez' Bandi Binder project & Gergely Laszlo's Collective Man, providing the unique opportunity to see these projects at a work-in-progress phase. Other artists include Francesco Jodice, Anthony Luvera and Roger Eberhard.

Within the theme, we will present David Monahan's project Leaving Dublin and Maurice Gunning's project on The Argentine Irish Diaspora at the National Photographic Archive.

Book & Magazines
Celebrating its second year, the Book & Magazine Fair (13-15 July) will offer two main exhibitions on the theme: Irène Attinger, head of the Maison de la Photographie Européenne's Library, one of the world's largest collections of its kind, will bring to Dublin a curated selection of photobooks. Featuring works by Augustus Sherman, Lewis Hine, Dorothea Lange, John Berger & Jean Mohr, Donald McCullin, Sebastião Salgado, Josef Koudelka, David Goldblatt, Frederic Brenner, Ad van Denderen, Alex Webb, Rip Hopkins, Ito Barrada, Joakim Eskildsen, Andreas Seibert, Patrick Zachmann, Jean Revillard, Alban Kakulya & Yann Mingard, Espen Rasmussen, and Thomas Mailaender.

In addition, the visitors will enjoy a selection of contemporary photography co-curated by five international photography magazines, including Camera Austria (Austria), European Photography (Germany), Fotografija (Slovenia) Kwartalnik Fotografia, (Poland), and Fotograf magazine (Czech Republic).

The fair will not only be showcasing The Library Project with its collection of over 700 photobooks, magazines and zines for everyone to browse, 2012 will bring an added highlight with selected international publishers exhibiting their latest publications.

Symposium: ‘On Migrations’
The festival Symposium investigates 'Migrations: Diaspora and Cultural Identity', developed in collaboration with GradCAM and with the kind support of the Dublin City Council. It will take place on July 12 at the WoodQuay venue, and will be accompanied by film screenings, such as ‘The Mexican Suitcase’, directed by Trisha Ziff.

Portfolio 12
Portfolio 12, PhotoIreland's international Portfolio Review (13-15 July) represents our commitment to the educational value of the festival, not only critically engaging the artists into an open conversation on their work, but also supporting the development of their professional network.
