The exhibition Territories raise awareness of the mutual interaction between an individual and the respective period of time in auteur photography. Seven photographers from Northern- and Eastern Europe - Heikki Kaski (FI), Katrīna Ķepule (LV), Daniels Mekšs (LV), Andrew Miksys (US/LT), Igor Samolet (RU), Igor Savchenko (BY) and Sara Skorgen Teigen (NO) - reveal territories and borders that turn out to be not only geographic but also socio-political and personal. The artists focus on the social landscape of Belarus, Californian town Tranquillity, stories on youth subcultures, as well as the relationship of photography as a medium with reality and memory. At the same time, the exhibition questions the common and different features in the photography of Northern and Eastern Europe.
