‘From Where I Stand’ explores how a more sustainable, inclusive and empowered future might be achieved from various perspectives. The 21st century way of living is severely influenced by the complex interdependency of people, the environment and technological processes. Technology allows us to enhance our bodies, to have immediate access to information and only communicate with like-minded people, and to use the earth’s resources for our own needs. Despite these advantages, these developments also lead to a many of disadvantages: Algorithms and filter bubbles influence our beliefs and actions. Not all people have equal access to resources; nature suffers from overexploitation. With work by Aàdesokan, Mónica Alcázar-Duarte, Heba Y.

Trigger#3: Care is everywhere and at the same time society faces a ‘care problem’. How do artists and photographers create more caring relationships between humans, technology, and nature, given the challenges? An editorial commitment to care by an international Belgian-Dutch-German team leads to a variety of artistic practices and underrepresented stories. Theoretical text contributions, visual contributions, and experimental, hybrid formats stand side by side. Trigger #3: Care eventually gathers many forms of care through photography and visual art practices.
