Festival exhibitions 2.0

This year the International Journalism Festival renews Exhibitions 2.0, the online space dedicated to photojournalism and photo galleries. In this edition the digital ‘exhibitions’ show very different subjects: from the photos of the journalist Olivier Voisin in Syria to the Italian documentary about prison conditions, from the collection of historical pages of  newspapers on the creation of the modern Republic of South Africa to the collection of all ‘headlines’ which appeared in episodes of The Simpsons up until the sixteenth season.

The voyage of the French photographer Olivier Voisin in Syria, a country ravaged by civil war, through the refugee camps on the border with Turkey and guerrillas in the streets of Aleppo. On 24 February 2013 Olivier Voisin died as a result of injuries sustained during the fighting in the city of Hamah, where he had gone following the Free Syrian Army to report on the atrocities of the war. Olivier was due to participate as a speaker in this year’s festival. The exhibition is in his memory.

Inside Carceri
From the webdoc produced by the reporters of Next New Media in collaboration with activists of the Antigone Association, a gallery of the three-month investigation and interviews in 25 Italian jails, travelling from Naples to Milan, between overcrowding and poor health conditions. A testimony gathered in order to spur a public discussion on the Italian prison system.

Simpsons: making the headlines
The collection, taken from simpsoncrazy.com, of all the headlines that appeared in sixteen seasons of the animated series The Simpsons, in order of appearance and with reference to the famous headline: “Old man yells at cloud” to the spinning paper, from the notorious Springfield Shopper to a newspaper dreamt up by Homer.

The Rainbow Nation
A little more than twenty years after the repeal of apartheid laws and the award of the Nobel Peace Prize to Nelson Mandela, a gallery by Renata Giannella for the newspaper library of the Italian Senate that traces, through the headlines, the historical events that have favored, or hindered, the birth of modern South Africa.
