Expo

The theme – Demons – is explored through 100 photobooks exhibited in five different shows. Each exhibition hosts a chapter of 8814, an experimental, dystopian and surreal web series created by Luca Baioni. In addition, a travelling exhibition titled Mojo inhabits the spaces of the festival, accompanying the visitors along their itinerary. Mojo, Yogurt Magazine’s latest publication, is a visual anthology that gathers international artists who reflect, from different perspectives, on themes such as the unknown, the unexpected and the uncanny.

The photobooks shown in the five exhibitions are provided by:

Choisi – Lugano
Libreria Marini – Rome
Paper Room – Rome
Studio Faganel – Gorizia
Xyz – Lisbon

The definitive program of the festival will be announced soon.
