The exhibition explores the complexity of engagement through the prism of migration, globalisation, and identity crises. Through these projects, the artists offer a committed approach to issues ranging from social movements and the fight against police violence to the questioning of security systems and the human and ecological tensions caused by our electronic waste. The exhibition also probes our personal engagement with society and the search for meaning in our daily lives, revealing our desires, our beliefs, but also our deepest fears.

To mark the 10th anniversary of the photography prize awarded by the Manuel Rivera-Ortiz Foundation, a tribute will be paid to Camille Lepage, whose talent as a photojournalist remains etched in our memories despite her tragic death. Her unwavering commitment to bearing witness to the often unknown realities of the world deserves to be celebrated and honoured.
