EXIT #17 - Cities

EXIT #17 Cities is dedicated to urban landscape, one of the most renowned genres of contemporary photography. The issue is divided into sections made up of photographs of some of the most important capitals in the world, including Berlin, Havana, New York, Paris, Shanghai and Tokyo.  

Cities that have changed throughout the years, following models of modernity and urbanism which as Rosa Olivares points out in the editorial The ideal city, is responsible for “All cities today being similar” though at the same time unique, thanks to the vision of the artist who “cuts and isolates the fragment”.    

Filippo Magia writes Intercepting the city, an article that presents the city as the scene of different events, as a theatre where the most diverse range of places and characters can be observed. In his text Renaissance of cities, the author Jordi Borja addresses the death of the city due to globalisation and its resurgence thanks to citizenship and the use of public space as somewhere to find, lose and express oneself; to change the world and make it a better place.

The artists in this issue are: Berenice Abbott, Chema Alvargonzález, José Manuel Ballester, Olivo Barbieri, Gabriele Basilico, Sergio Belinchón, Peter Bialobrzeski, Botto e Bruno, Balthasar Burkhard, Vincenzo Castella, Hannah Collins, Stéphane Couturier, Raymond Depardon, José María Díaz-Maroto, Philip-Lorca divorcia, Manel Esclusa, David Goldblatt, Dionisio González, Andreas Gursky, Axel Hütte, Francesco Jodice, Keizo Kitajima, Karine Laval, Ángel Marcos, Michael Najjar, Melanie Smith, Thomas Struth, Frank Thiel, Wolfgang Tillmans, Cássio Vasconcellos and Wim Wenders.
