Ties That Bind | Seven young European photographers

FUTURES announces the selected artists for the 2024 travel exhibition Ties That Bind.

The open call received almost 200 applications from across Europe. The selected artists are: Ihar Hancharuk, Sasha Chaika, Angyvir Padilla, Jan Durina, Dev Dhunsi, Luna Mahoux, Sheung Yiu, and Donja Nasseri.


Their projects will be exhibited at Organ Vida Festival (Zagreb), Bienal Fotografia do Porto (Porto) and Fotograf Magazine (Prague).


FUTURES’ annual theme Ties That Bind invites us “to challenge, untie, and move beyond familial ties. It explores new, meaningful ways to belong, connect, and experience closeness. It imagines new forms of attachment and kinship that could exist beyond familiar social structures, relationships, and species… or grow from within their loopholes.

It challenges and raises “questions, including those that are mischievous, fun, and dissident. It embraces projects that embody fragmented, contradictory, and open constructions of our individual and collective selves.”


The Jury: Organ Vida Festival, Bienal Fotografia do Porto and Fotograf Magazine.
