A LEMMA: KLAATU BARADA NIKTO

For the 2019 edition we are going to use the iconic sci-fi message “Klaatu Barada Nikto” as our leitmotiv.

One of the most remembered quotes of the history of cinema, from “The Day the Earth Stood Still” (1951), where the main character pronounces it in front of robot Gort to make it desist in its intention of destroying the Earth. Words used in extremis that will save the planet from an extraterrestrial destruction.

With this message, Revela’T wants to encourage photographic projects that show the complex relationship between humans and the planet, mainly through the change and unbalances created when using and abusing Earth, as well as due to the economic and political interests.

Those create, among others, climate change, migrations, wars… but it also shows a kinder and hopeful side thanks to the beauty and richness of its habitat and through social or ecological initiatives.

Therefore, 2019 edition of Revela’T questions our value as a civilization and broadcasts these questions to an interplanetary audience:

Why we deserve to be destroyed? Or why we deserve to be saved?

WHAT IS REVELA’T?

Revela’T is an international photographic festival that has become a meeting point for lovers of photography and especially for those passionate about analog photography, who are becoming more and more and come from remote places.

In an era in which digital technology dominates, Revela’T advocates for these other photographic procedures that require a more relaxed look and tempo, as well as for sharing experiences, knowledge, and establishing contact and synergies with other people, institutions and projects.

 

VILASSAR · BARCELONA · MADRID

Festival Revela’T starts in Vilassar de Dalt in 2013 organized by Asociación Fotográfica Espaifoto becoming the main cultural innovation event for contemporary analogue photography.

In 2017 it spreads its area of influence to Barcelona organizing the OFF Revela’T, where galleries and centers specialized in photography joined the exhibition proposal. On 2018 the festival had 20 exhibitions at the city, plus 30 which are exhibited in Vilassar.

At the end of 2018 we accepted the proposal of making a winter edition in Madrid, which was so successful that we are already working on a new edition for December 2019.

This year we expand our presence in Barcelona and on the 15th of June we will have a session about photobooks and other formats at the Antigua Fábrica Damm.

… and there are new challenges for the future which we will explain to you soon.

BECOME A FRIEND OF REVELA’T

Organizing Revela’t is a yearly challenge for Associació Fotogràfica Espaifoto.

To share and promote culture and photography isn’t easy and although we have help from institutions and private sponsorship, we don’t cover all the needs that an ever expanding festival needs.

That is why we ask for your help, which can be a small effort to you but it means a lot to us.

To take part in the activities is a way of helping, but we have thought in a new and easy form of helping and which includes exclusive advantages, becoming a friend of Revela’T.

A yearly fee which in exchange will offer you materials, workshops or other gifts and that you know that it will be exclusively used to support the organization of the festival.
