Editing the News

The exhibiition opens on October 25, 2013 — February 2, 2014 at the FoMu (FotoMuseum), Antwerp, Belgium

The news that ends up in the newspapers at our breakfast tables has been subjected to endless filters. Every day, thousands of photographs are posted to editorials offices, while only a few make it to the finish. With, this exhibition FoMu questions these selection rounds. Why is one image chosen above another? Through whole s lenses are we looking anyway? With work from Hans Aarsman, Alfredo Jaar, Martijin Kleppe, Paul Qaysi and Frank Schallmaier.
