CONNECTIONS

COLLECTIVE EXHIBITION

BERLIN

For this new exhibition, PEP invited artists to show how their photographic practice can express the notion of ‘Connection‘ - by definition, a relationship in which a person or thing is linked or associated with something else. This concept is omnipresent in our lives, as connections between people, places, times, objects, ideas or energies can be found at so many different levels.

 

The idea of connectedness can be associated with globalization, the boom of digitalization or the development of technologies and means of transportation, or it can be seen as the result of successful networking and cooperation. ‘Connection‘ is also a fundamental pillar of one’s well-being and spiritual life. The relationship with others and the world contributes to shaping our identities and plays an important role in our sense of belonging to a place or a community. This feeling can lead to a deep understanding and awareness of the interconnectedness of everything. Environmentally, socially, economically – any way you look at it, we all are individual parts of a greater whole.

 

How can this concept of ‘Connection’ be defined? Is this feeling of being connected to oneself and to others the key to a meaningful life? How does photography relate to this concept? Does the photographic medium, which by definition creates a connection with a different time and space, have the power to take us to another dimension?

 

These questions have been explored in many different ways by artists who responded to PEP's open call. This exhibition will present their respective visions on the topic.
