As part of the DOCfield>16 photography festival, the ‘European Man’ exhibition explores Europe’s identity, values and the challenges it faces, with photographs by Piero Martinello (Italy), Michal Iwanowski (Poland), Dana Popa (Romania) and France Keyser (France). In their own unique ways, each photographer examines the notion of European identity in the past, underlining the contrast between memory and amnesia, and invites the viewer to question what it means to be European today. They also present their views on a range of issues, including identity, territory, and political, economic and cultural borders. As Europe finds itself in a period of uncertainty and change, this exhibition presents an opportunity to reflect on the continent’s fundamental values and acknowledge the evils of the past in order to face the future.
