Panoràmic is a festival that explores the relationship between the still image and the moving image. And it does so through photography, cinema and the new disciplines that are expressed with images such as video, video installations, video games, mappings, photobooks, among others. They also organize exhibitions, workshops, conferences and workshops. It is a singular and unique cultural proposal.
About the 2022 edition of Festival Panoràmic
This year, the main theme of the Panoràmic Festival is the landscape. Today, our gaze no longer idealizes the landscape or yearns for rural life, but instead focuses on a world in danger, a danger that is only detected through increasingly complex techniques: satellites, chronophotography, the study of specific species, analysis climate, rivers, seas and oceans, among others. Based on this idea, they propose the title of "The fourth landscape" for the 2022 edition. The first landscape would be the one that appears before our eyes. The second landscape would be the one discovered in distant lands after having "ordered" ours. We no longer see what we have in front of us, but an idealization of it. The third landscape is what, here or there, does not appear profitable; it is an undefined territory without symbolic capacity, it is a space of traffic and fleeting realities (markets, events, fairs...). The fourth landscape would therefore be the supplanted, devastated spaces (by the action of man or catastrophes), artificial, recreated (theme parks, dioramas) or iconized until their dissolution as reality (tourist postcard), video games, virtual environments...
The Panoràmic Festival takes place in Granollers and Barcelona.
