Photography: Non Places – Everywhere/Nowhere

23 April- 04 June 2006
East 66, Center for Urban Culture, Amsterdam

Curated by Ayako Yoshimura

‘If a place can be defined as relational, historical and concerned with identity, then a space which cannot be defined as relational, or historical, or concerned with identity will be a non-place.’ (Marc Augé, Non-Places: Introduction to an Anthropology of Supermodernity)

We spend an increasing part of our lives within ‘non-places’ whether in shopping malls, peripheral business centres, suburban neighbourhoods, mega-multiplex cinemas, identical hotels or faceless airports.

The exhibition will reflect on the contradictory environment in which we live, by presenting work by the artists Delphine Bedel, Arnout Killian Ilya Rabinovich and Ayako Yoshimura.
