Panoràmic is a festival that explores the relationship between the still image and the moving image. And it does so through photography, film and new disciplines that are expressed with images such as video, video installations, video games, mappings, photobooks and others. They also organize exhibitions, workshops, conferences, screenings and workshops. It is a singular and unique cultural proposal.
About the 2023 edition of Festival Panoràmic
This year, the main theme of the Panoràmic Festival is the face. Measuring, reading and deciphering the face has been a constant throughout history. This interest in the face has grown exponentially in recent times with facial recognition systems. In this year's edition, the festival aims to show how this desire has evolved over time, from the appearance of photography to the present day, where it is mixed with technology and self-representation. The graphic and artistic legacy of this quest has been significant, inspiring diverse representations of the human face and body. Today's technology, both surgical and digital, allows us to explore the mutability of the face, challenging its permanence. At present, devices, programs and practices continue to expand the expressive possibilities of the face and generate new perspectives on it.
The Panoràmic Festival takes place in Granollers and Barcelona.
