Opening: ENFOCADES! “el que anem trobant..” – Discovering the presence of women in the AFC

1 01Europe/Madrid December 01Europe/Madrid 2021 - 9:00 - 8 08Europe/Madrid January 08Europe/Madrid 2022 - 17:00

From December 1st to January 8th, 2022

The Agrupació Fotogràfica de Catalunya, founded in 1923, has been the main association dedicated to the promotion of artistic photography in the country, favoring the appearance of successive generations of renowned photographers, such as Pla i Janini, Campañá, or Carbonell, and later Miserachs, Masats, Terré or Maspons.

On the other hand, the interest of the women of the Franco regime was favored, achieving the dissemination of their works in the so-called Women’s Group, a pioneer in Spain.

Over the years, all this activity has created an excellent heritage fund, enriched by numerous donations from authors or relatives.

The AFC wants to give visibility and highlight part of this heritage through works by members who in an entity, mostly male, have been part of the history of photography, many of which have not yet been recognized , and others, little known, in order to facilitate a better understanding of the reality that has existed over the years in the field of amateur photography.

The purpose of this exhibition is to make known and disseminate the photographic work of members and donors of the Agrupació Fotogràfica de Catalunya. These authors have been located in recent years as progress has been made in the inventory of the heritage fund.

The exhibition is not intended to be a final act, but rather a presentation open to future research that places women photographers in their proper place.

Works by: Anna Barnès, Rosa Bosch, Elvira Castellvi, Elisenda Domingo, Elisabeth Figa, Carme Garcia Pedrosa, Carme Garcia Portabales, Montserrat Gili, Teresa Gironés, Pilar Masbernat, Lina Mur, Carme Ollé, Roser Oromí, Francesca Portolés, Pepita Sulé

From the AFC Heritage Commission we invite you to discover them!
