BREAKING POINT
unlearning x rethinking x restarting

The Triennial of Photography Hamburg 2018 is intended to engage audiences, inspire action and invoke change. It is a time to reflect, unlearn, rethink and restart. Photography is a powerful tool to convey the message.

[enter], [space], [home], [shift], [control], [return], [delete], and [escape] are today widespread lexicons of the contemporary world but there is a compelling message hidden behind these computer keys. Let us freeze time for a moment and contemplate their original meaning.
