FASE – Festival di Arti Visive a Sud Est

Starting on 21st June 2024, the city of Otranto will host the first edition of a Visual Arts Festival, which will animate the eastern area of Salento with artistic and musical events.
FASE – Festival of Visual Arts in the South East – organised by the association Fuori Fase APS with the artistic direction of Alessia Locatelli, the support of the Municipality of Otranto, and the patronage of the Apulia Region – will feature exhibitions, talks, workshops, and music, which will fill the streets and palaces of Otranto throughout the summer.

Sites of historical interest in the city centre, the seafront and Porto Badisco will host photographs and sitographies, i.e. images generated through the use of artificial intelligence.
Otranto will thus become an important cultural centre for the entire summer of 2024, thanks to exhibitions, installations and music.

After the first 200 years since the invention of photography, FASE questions its future. Starting with analogue, passing through digital and arriving at the contemporary synographies, which today open up exciting new challenges to the world of the artist’s image.
Talks, debates and workshops will animate the dense programme of FASE, in order to reflect on what photography will give us in the next 200 years.
