During 5 days, throughout the program the public is invited to attend roundtables and workshops to think about photography. Far from labelling and coming up with theories, the event is mainly aimed at providing a possibility to understand and question the different typologies of photographic practices. During the first edition, visitors will also be capable of benefitting from a varied program including conferences and workshops.
