We spend a third of our lives sleeping and with a little luck we dream on a daily basis, although most of the time we don’t remember what we’ve dreamed about. We have several dreams a night, long dreams and short dreams in which we can be the prince, the princess and the dragon without prejudice or problem. EXIT 85 focuses indeed on sleepers and dreams. From the places meant for sleeping, to the vulnerability and fragility that sleeping implies, to the poetics and aesthetics of sleep.
EXIT 85 Sleepers and Dreamers gathers two central texts by researcher Sharon Silwinski and EXIT’ founder, Rosa Olivares. Silwinski addresses a political dimension of sleep, in which sleeping could be considered as resistance to progress, but constitutes as well a right in itself. The text that is illustrated with photographs by Oscar Rejlander, Niv Acosta and Fannie Sosa, Magnus Wennman and Sam Taylor-Johnson. On the other hand, Olivares proposes an aesthetic journey around the bed and dreams with photographs by Luis González Palma, Donovan Wylie, Sophie Calle, Elliott Erwitt and Félix González-Torres. EXIT 85’s dossiers look at those who sleep out in the streets with Francis Alÿs and Lars Klingenberg; also to those who do it at the beach, as we see on Carlos Pérez-Siquier’s and Tadao Cern’s pictures; and to those who sleep at cafes, as Guillaume Hebert shows. Through photographs taken by Annaleen Louwes, María Friberg and Natacha Lesueur, we will approach a more conceptual dimension of the sleeper. And, finally, Ferdinando Scianna will guide us through indoor and outdoor spaces in which sleepers peacefully rest, in black and white.
In Portfolio, the section in which we give space to the most interesting photographers of the new generations, we present Sonsoles Company, César Dezfuli, Julio Galeote, Nicolas K Feldmeyer and Erinn Springer.
