Enjoy the conference series by LCI Barcelona!
Next Wednesday, January 19th at 19:00h (Barcelona time) we start the 5th season of our conference series DI55ECCIONS, in which we are visited by great experts in design, visual arts, innovation and creativity. After the 100% online format of the last edition, this will be in hybrid mode (face-to-face and via streaming) whenever the situation allows it.
For the first conference of this season, we have the Barcelona photographer Txema Salvans, who develops his work with a documentary and artistic approach outside the usual circuits of photojournalism, also approaching the photographic essay. Joan Fontcuberta describes his work as a "balance between critical thinking and a poetic sense of humor".
A chronicler of contemporary Spain, his projects are consolidated, above all, in book format. Nice To Meet You (ACTAR, 2005) received the Photo España 2005 Award for Best Photobook, while The Waiting Game (RM, 2013) was awarded Best Ibero-American Photobook in 2012.
Txema's work has been published in international media such as Le Monde, The New York Times, Libération, Vice, Marie Claire, Wallpaper, El País Semanal, etc. He has also exhibited at numerous festivals and museums such as Arts Santa Mònica, La Virreina, Museo Reina Sofía and Museum für Photographie Braunschweig, among many others.
*The biographical details of Txema Salvans have been extracted from the Foto Colectania website, specifically from the section dedicated to Perfect Day exhibition.

What is DI55ECCIONS?
The term "dissection" comes from the Latin dissectio, which means "action and effect of dividing a thing into multiple parts for examination". This is the approach that DI55ECCIONS is based on: exploring different areas of the world of design, visual arts, innovation and creativity with the aim of drawing inspiring conclusions. The graphic identity of the cycle takes the five as the axis around which each edition revolves, either by the number of speakers or the amount of content (projects, influences, trends, etc.) that are presented.
Since its birth in 2016, DI55ECCIONS has featured prominent speakers such as Martí Guixé, Chris Grant, Anna Puigjaner, Carmelo Zappulla, Domestic Data Streamers, Snoop Barcelona and Dominnico, among others, who have told us about their professional careers, their work and their creative processes. The evenings have also contributed to promote dialogue between guests and attendees, thus encouraging the exchange of experiences, ideas and advice and fostering networking.
