The 19th edition of this essential photography event has arrived, flooding all of the main galleries and culture venues of the Spanish capital from the 1st of June until the 28th of August. During PhotoEspaña you can admire the works dedicated, on this occasion, to Europe, among which are those by Bernard Blossy or Linerejos Moreno, which can be enjoyed in the Real Jardín Botánico, the chosen venue for the inauguration by mayor Manuela Carmena. Here are some of the most interesting exhibitions in the extensive programme:

At Círculo de Bellas Artes, you can enjoy “Transitions. Ten years that transformed Europe”, an exhibition which portrays the different changes that transformed Europe’s political landscape between 1979 and 1989, from the rise of Thatcherism to the fall of the Berlin Wall, with the consolidation of capitalism in the background.

Centro Cultural de la Villa, also known as Centro Fernán-Gómez, hosts “Muchismo”, by Cristina de Middel (b. Alicante, 1975), considered as one of Spain’s best contemporary photography artists. Her exhibition is perhaps one of the most complex ones, exhibiting all of the works that have no space in the conventional market or that are not to the collectors’ taste. It is some sort of downpour of remains of the unclassifiable sort whose title hints at what’s in store: “Muchismo”, plentyism.

Sala Canal de Isabel II, with its unique architectonic structure, is one of the spaces that indulges the most in photographic art all year long. During PhotoEspaña, its walls will exhibit the work of Paco Gómez under the title “The poetic instant and the architectural image”. Those who attend this exhibition (Calle Santa Engracia, 125) will be able to enjoy the work of this self-taught artist (b. Pamplona 1918, d. Madrid, 1988), creator of the group La Palangana together with other artists such as Ramón Masats. The exhibition is a great compilation of his works, which combine the warmth of life and the human figure with the coldness of Postmodernism’s most emphatic architectural shapes.
