“Study on Power” explores the power relations between architecture and photography, located somewhere between symbiosis and parasitism. The starting point for observation is to consider architecture as a symbolic manifestation of power and, consequently, to reflect on the different ways of seeing and interpreting architectural photography. In particular, the exhibition speculates on the production, consumption and mechanical reproduction of photographic images in order to raise awareness of the seductive effects of social power structures. “Study on Power” invites awareness of the widespread linear and highly masculine constructs of the history of architecture, and consideration of the possibility of alternative narratives.
