Friday 6th, Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th May, 9 pm - 12 am, Spazio Gerra
Video-screenings of the works can be viewed on small screens at Spazio Gerra until 12th June.

Video and photography screenings and installations from “Circulation(s)”, Festival de la jeune photographie Eurpéenne in Paris, presented by Fetart. Artistic coordination by Marion Hislen and Laura Serani.

Circulation(s), the first Festival of young European photography – to its credit – has the audacity of devoting itself entirely to young artists. Sensitive to the idea of drawing a portrait of Europe's young creative talent – and, consequently, of youth, pure and simple – I accepted enthusiastically Fetart's invitation to work on the first of these festivals. The success it scored among the public and the press in Paris immediately opened the prospect of launching the initiative in the form of a European tour, which we are happy to start in Reggio Emilia on the  occasion of Fotografia Europea, now a well-established and internationally recognized event which, under its protective aegis, we might say, is hosting the new generations here with Circulation(s) at Spazio Gerra.
