“Points on the Map – The Representation of Conflict in Cultural Space” is part of the Beijing Photo Biennial 2013. This Paradox exhibition deals with the changing geopolitical landscape in the 21st century and the ways in which political conflicts are being represented by photographers, filmmakers and artists.
“Points on the Map” is a multiplatform exhibition, including photographic prints, audiovisual installations and apps. International artists, photographers and filmmakers were selected for this exhibition: Robert Knoth & Antoinette de Jong (NL), Tim Hetherington (GB), Simon Norfolk (GB), Ad Nuis (NL), Anastasia Khoroshilova (RUS), Seda Muradyan (ARM), Dirk-Jan Visser & Arthur Huizinga (NL), Ad van Denderen (NL), Nir Evron (IL), Juul Hondius (NL), Miquel Dewever-Plana & Isabelle Fougere (FR), Kadir van Lohuizen (NL).
The aim of Points on the Map is to show what kind of models and practices documentary photographers and filmmakers have developed in recent years regarding conflicts in other (and in some cases their own) parts of the world. In this framework four regions will receive special attention: Afghanistan, Israel/Palestine, Latin-America and the Caucasus.
Paradox director Bas Vroege was invited to curate this exhibition for the inaugural edition of the Beijing Photo Biennial, organised by the prestigious art museum of the Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFAM).
