Brighton Photo Biennial returns 28 September – 28 October 2018 across Brighton & Hove, showcasing eighteen artists over eight venues.
The theme for its eighth edition is A New Europe and the festival is curated by Photoworks Director Shoair Mavlian, working with local and international partners. The programme includes: Heather Agyepong, Bill Brandt, Tereza Červeňová, Cross Channel Photographic Mission, Aikaterini Gegisian, Uta Kögelsberger, Émeric Lhuisset,Robin Maddock, Photography Club, Hrair Sarkissian, Harley Weir and Donovan Wylie.
Examining the current state of flux as the United Kingdom redefines its role in Europe, A New Europe draws on one of the most important geopolitical events of our time. The UK’s status within the EU may be changing, but geographically we will remain part of Europe – with a shared history and intertwined future. Much of the photography in Brighton Photo Biennial 2018 responds to this current uncertainty and explores Britain’s geography as an island, the ongoing refugee crisis and photography’s role in the construction of national identity.
