The thematic section, curated by Gerardo Mosquera, proposes an exhibition programme devoted to the concept Body. Eros and Politics. PHE13 will examine this key area, and will also explore the bodyless erotic gaze, aimed at the world around us. In the opposite direction, the Festival will deal with non-erotic photography – aesthetic, constructive, abstract – in which the human body plays a central role.
The exhibition programme will include artists such as Shirin Neshat and Cristina Lucas and collective exhibitions as Him, her, it, which will join together works by Edward Weston and Harry Callahan.
