Including in the cultural program of Tandem Paris-Madrid this photographic exhibition reflects on the influence of urbanism on society and its development, as well as on the identity of the inhabitants. The group “Aquellos que esperan”, formed by photographers Borja Larrondo and Diego Sánchez, documents since 2012 the aspects and situations of daily life in the suburbs, investigating the physical and psychic dimensions generated by both architectural structures and institutional policies. They carry out fieldwork consisting of many micronarratives to ask questions instead of reaching closed conclusions.
“La Même Indifférence”
October 20, 2017 – January 14, 2018
Plaza Cibeles, 1, 28014 Madrid
Between 2012 and 2015 they focused on the Orcasur district of Madrid. Between 2015 and 2016 they worked in the area of La Corneve, on the northern outskirts of Paris. In a new phase of work, eleven in space 104-Le Centquatre de Paris, have tried to delineate lines of comparison between both realities. How is it possible that places with multifaceted stories have so many similarities and at the same time generate the same indifference?
The même indifférence is a photographic exhibition curated by Sandra Maunac, included in the Paris-Madrid Tandem, an annual program in which Paris builds cultural bridges with other cities around the world. The show has the collaboration of Koln St. (Daniel Fuente and Pablo Mariné) and the Urbiquity platform (Stefano Carnelli, Pablo Conejo and Mattias Malk).
