Let me be your guide: Turning Photography

A visual guide of contemporary Belgian photography, developed in the context of the Belgian pavilion at the 2017 Venice Biennale

Dirk Braeckman’s selection for the Belgian Pavilion at the 57th Venice Biennale prompted to turn the spotlight on some of the most audacious artists working in the medium of photography in Belgium today. Their self-reflexive attitude has led to new and daring attempts to redefine the possibilities of the photographic system. Turning Photography unfolds a curated selection of artists’ portraits and essays by prominent critics.

Next to a broad selection of older, more established artists and photographers, Turning Photography focuses on a generation of up-and-coming young photographers and visual artists. Their work has been chosen because of its candour and lack of reverence towards more conventional photographic practices.
