Collettivof is a established in 2023, but already active in 2022, artist group working with photography. The group intends to start an annual program of activities such as exhibitions, meetings, talks, seminars and workshops.
Collettivof understands and explores photographic practice as inherently and historically experimental in its expression, and not merely in a technical sense.
As a matter of fact, photography, like any form of writing, should not be understood as an art of calligraphy, nor as an aesthetic or content sensationalism.
Rather, it should be intended like the perfect union between the what, the how and the why.
We, members of collettivof, are interested in photographic practices that make use of these elements and enhance them.
As part of this approach, we have set some points that embody the meaning of the cultural operation we intend to give life to:
As a part of our activities, we are looking for authors and visitors who share these positions; positions that we will take into account in the organisation of all our initiatives.
We therefore hope to be able to make a contribution to the growth of photographic culture, with events based on the Municipality of Palermo but of national and international scope. As a matter of fact, we know it's necessary for photographic cultures to be situated internationally in order to grow and develop.
