In the last three decades, major changes in visual technology have witnessed the demise of the industrial giants and the traditional photographic technologies that once dominated the medium. These changes as well as the increased capacity for the medium to portray imaginary environments has brought into question the alchemical nature of photography as a continuous system thus highlighting its newly acquired relationship to the discrete values of digital technologies.
With this context in mind, the exhibition South of the Border presents the work of five artists exploring aspects brought into focus by these changes; they provide us with glimpses of future developments on the medium, addressing topics that range from interactions with new technologies, fictional narratives, advances on the genealogy of genres as well as innovative interactions with other media.
