Event Description

The worker-photography movement is often marginalized in discussions of how photographic modernism evolved over the course of the 20th century. This visit to the exhibition is intended to help rectify this shortcoming and provide the elements necessary to convey a history of the movement, for the first time, in a museum of modern art.

Jorge Ribalta, photography historian and curator of the exhibition, makes, in this presentation, an initial attempt at historization, in which the idea is not to look at particular artists and photographs, but rather to narrate the creation of public spaces through the medium of photography.
