Letizia Battaglia: Fotografija kot življenjska izbira

24/05 – 02/10/2022 


The exhibition conveys strongly radicalised and socially critical ideas that characterise the entire oeuvre of award-winning Italian photographer Letizia Battaglia. It includes portraits of photographers, women, animals and the cities in which she lived. The central themes include politics, life, death, love and horizons.

Razstava posreduje močno radikalizirane in družbeno kritične ideje, ki so značilne za celotni opus večkrat nagrajene italijanske fotografinje Letizie Battaglia. Vključuje portrete fotografov, žensk, živali, mest, v katerih je živela, med osrednjimi temami pa so politika, življenje, smrt, ljubezen in obzorja.

Jakopič Gallery has operated as part of the MGML galleries since 2009. During this time it has hosted many different projects in the field of visual art, design, photography and architecture, and over the past decade has established itself as one of Slovenia's central venues for large-scale photography exhibitions by internationally established foreign photographers and extensive retrospectives of renown Slovenian photographers. These are often lifetime oeuvres that have not yet undergone a comprehensive professional reappraisal. The gallery's exhibition and education programme is focused on the social understanding of photography as one of the most expressive artistic, communicative and creative visual media.
