The 8th Triennial of Photography – set to take place in Hamburg from May 20 to September 18, 2022 – centres around the topic of ‘Currency’.
Our modern lives are characterised by an infinite stream of available images. What is the power – the value – of photography amidst this overabundance? The 8th edition of the Triennial explores this question by looking at the manifestations, production processes and interpretations of photography.
Twelve exhibitions will be on show in ten of Hamburg’s major museums and institutions. The presented works – which range from colonial-era photo albums to fantasies distilled into pictures, and span from experimental to social-documentary approaches – reflect the extraordinary breadth of possibilities inherent in the photographic medium.
Equally diverse is the list of the 77 showcased artists, which includes internationally renowned photographers such as Akinbode Akinbiyi, Viktoria Binschtok, Louise Lawler, Walid Raad and Martha Rosler. The Triennial programme also features solo exhibition by LaToya Ruby Frazier, Herbert List, Charlotte March and Hans Meyer-Veden.
Despite the wide range of venues and approaches, the showcases are closely interlinked – each of them representing one station on a carefully mapped-out ‘parcour’. This provides visitors with a cohesive experience, which is complemented by additional events and theme-specific tours.
