In 2016, when we celebrate the fourth centennial of Miguel de Cervantes’ death, the international festival of photography and visual arts PHotoEspaña honors the memory of the writer with five exhibitions by Spanish and international photographers, including Brazilian Caio Reisewitz (São Paulo, 1967). Titled Visiones de La Mancha [Visions of La Mancha], the current edition of the festival happens for the first time in the Comunidad de Castilla – La Mancha, homeland of the famous Quixote and his windmills.
Caio Reisewitz presents at the Museum of Albacete the show Ingenios de Hoy, where he approaches the industrial potential of this community apparently anchored on its agricultural past. The artist has traveled over several cities of Comunidad, through its technology companies, astronomic centers, photovoltaic institutes, hydrogen centers, thermal power plants, and wineries with denomination of origin. The memories of such a journey include images the Airbus plant at Illescas, Toledo; the Astronomic Center at Yebes, Guadalajara; the National Center of Hydrogen and the Thermal Power Plant GICC at Puertollano, Ciudad Real – visions of a La Mancha in tune with the present and the future, searching for sustainable models of development.
Opening on June 23rd, the exhibition can be visited until August 28, 2016. For more information, please visit the festival's website.
