Casa Asia in PhotoEspaña 2018: “Retrospectives of Briccio Santos”

June 13- June 26, 2018

The programming of Casa Asia for PHotoESPAÑA 2018 on the one hand addresses the state of photography in the Philippines and the outcomes of its expansion through several case studies with the participation of a special guest, Briccio Santos, whose photographic and cinematographic work will be shown during sessions detailed below. On the other hand, it will show photography from Japan, through the recovery of a mythical figure, like the one represented by the photographer Takuma Nakahira (1938-2015).

Casa Asia will host this presentation with the inclusion of Filipino photographer and film director Briccio Santos, president of the FILM ASEAN foundation. Furthermore, this will be part of the round table on the here and now of photography in the Philippines, in the context of Southeast Asia and Asia Pacific, along with Alejandro Castellote, Manuel Asín and Menene Gras Balaguer (Casa Asia Director of Culture and Exhibitions). In turn, during a special session Briccio Santos will present his work, which for years has explored what unites and separates photography and moving image. Finally, four titles of his cinematographic work made between 1982 and 2017 will be shown at Círculo de Bellas Artes.
