Memento mori is a reminder of the inevitable nature of death. The exhibition is a kind of homage to the memento mori direction in renaissance painting. Death means oblivion, one is dead when nobody remembers them.
Photo exibition and special dummy edition.

Siv I – The Time Capsule
The time capsule is a historic cache of important goods or information intended as a method of communication with future generations. Most often it is a small metal box buried or put aside to be opened or accessed many years later. Numerous capsules were buried marking historic events, placed in corner-stones of important buildings or even sent into space. They are to be opened on a day in the distant future. The time capsules are meant to help future generations understand the world of a bygone time.
These photos are part of the bigger exhibition about the Federal Executive Council and the book.

The Missing Eye
Mattia Parodi and Piergiorgio Sorgetti
Curator Tommaso Parrillo
Recent studies published on Cognitive Brain Research have demonstrated, using instruments that measure dream activity, that people blind since birth dream in images. Several hypotheses suggest that these representations are a result of the collaboration between the activity of the visual cortex and the activity of other sensory organs, however it isn’t excluded that the human being has an innate visual memory, parallel and pre-existing to that which develops through the retinal system. Some images seem to be independent from the visual apparatus and even though they appear in dreams, it is still possible to see them.
With which eye do we perceive them?
The Missing Eye is a research that turns the photographic device to visual projections that aren’t deduced from our immediate experience of reality but are the result of the combination of different cognitive paths in which all senses participate in sight. The gaze dissolves itself and the eye becomes a changing object of our perceptions, an abstract organ capable of processing images beyond retinal impulses. The photographic gesture captures the visual mechanism and transcends it, bringing attention to the typical transfigurative mental visions of the dream, sunk in memory and relegated to the unconscious.

Photographic tribute to “Summer nights, walking” by Robert Adams
This is the second time that Бартcелона POP UP has organised a tribute exhibition to one photo book. The first tribute occurred last year when we organised an international group exhibition that referenced the unique photo book “Twentysix Gasoline Stations” by Ed Ruscha. The results were very satisfying and we decided to take the opportunity of arranging a similar exhibition as part of the 1st edition of BPM book, 2022. The selected book for this exhibition will be: “Summer Nights, Walking” by Robert Adams.
“Summer Nights, Walking” is an essential photo book that has been hailed as a classic. The first edition, simply titled “Summer Nights”, was published by Aperture in 1985, and included 38 images of nocturnal scenes taken in the region of Longmont and the Rocky Mountains in Colorado.
A re-edited version of the book was co-published with Aperture in 2009 and titled “Summer Nights, Walking”. For this revision Robert Adams added an extra 39 previuosly unpublished photos. May 2022 will see a new enlarged version of the book published by Steidl, an international publisher of photobooks based in Germany.
For our tribute, we did not ask for photos that were taken in Colorado, or for square format photos, but we wanted to keep the the theme of black and white photography and the essential spirit of the book, but with a wider geographic spread.
This exhibition includes work by:

Platforms is a series exploring the unique New York underground architecture and the people temporarily passing through it. Subway platforms seen from the point of view of a waiting commuter on the other side, present a voyeuristic experience geometrically dissected by the architecture of the space.
Platforme predstavljaju istraživačku seriju jedinstvene podzemne arhitekture Njujorka, kroz koju se svakodnevno prolazi, tj. u kojoj se privremeno boravi. Metro platforme posmatrane sa tačke gledišta putnika sa suprotnih strana predstavljaju voajersko iskustvo precizno presečeno arhitekturom prostora.
Anachronicles 1995-2020 is a 25-year survey of the work of Serbian photo-grapher Siniša Vlajković, taking the viewer on an idiosyncratic journey of discovery and self-discovery, moving forward through space and backwards through time.
ECOSISTEMA CDMX06050 by Jacob Prado shows the photographer’s rediscovery, during his return to Mexico City after two decades of living abroad, of the enormous amalgam of contrasts that characterize his vigorous society.
