Corps à corps: Histoire(s) de la photographie
Sep 6, 2023 – Mar 25, 2024
Centre Pompidou
Paris, France

Bringing together more than 500 photographs and documents by some 120 historical and contemporary photographers, Corps à corps (Body to body) offers a unique insight into photographic representations of the human race in the 20th and 21st centuries. The exhibition goes beyond the traditional categories of study such as “portrait”, “self-portrait”, “nudes” and so-called “humanist” photography. It reveals the particularities and “photographic” ways of seeing, showing the connections between artists.

It brings to light common obsessions in ways of addressing the subject and stylistic approaches. The images on display also question the photographer’s responsibility: how does photography contribute to the birth of identities and their visibility? How does it recount individualities, the relationship with the Other? The exhibition is an encounter between two exceptional collections: the public collection of the Musée National d’Art Moderne, Centre Pompidou, and the private one of collector and filmmaker Marin Karmitz.

    Curating an international Kyiv Biennial with cultural workers in times of war poses a challenge both for the institutions and for the individuals involved. Curatorship under emergency circumstances imposes completely different conditions on the production and perception of artworks and discourses, and reimagines the biennial as a collective endeavor on an existential ground of political, social, and cultural survival.
