The third part of the main exhibition, “Earthlings”, which is – unlike the first two – situated in a gallery institution, explores the possibilities of overcoming the cycle of violence and healing; extraction and growth. On the one hand, it considers patterns of environmental and racial injustice, while on the other hand, it looks up towards the autonomous power of patterns whose provenance is not in the register of human experiences and practice, but the mythological and poetic activity of objects on the threshold of the animate and the inanimate. The ability of these objects to constantly oscillate between meanings and perspectives serves as a guide to another of the principles of terrestrialness: to avoid the ’calcification’ of power relationships in our society.
 
The motif of the eleventh edition of the Fotograf Festival is the idea of a natural metabolism of the image and trust in the capacity to capture within it traces of the reality that is changing around us. This also has to do with the conviction that folk, non-scientific practice can serve as a guide on how to depict the climate crisis and uncover the principles of being an Earthling.
