The programme for Brighton Photo Biennial 2012, Agents of Change: Photography and the Politics of Space launched 16 July at The Photographers' Gallery alongside a shiny new bpb.org.uk website.
BPB12 will run across the City of Brighton and Hove throughout October 2012. Including work by Edmund Clark, Omer Fast, Julian Germain, Jason Larkin, Trevor Paglen, Corinne Silva, Thomson and Craighead and more, BPB12 explores how space is constructed, controlled and contested, how photography is implicated in these processes, and the tensions and possibilities this dialogue involves.
Responding to recent efforts to politically re-imagine urban space through social and civic uses, BPB12 presents photography and imagery generated by professional photographers and the public at large; grassroots activism and media spectacle; established names and recent finds; contemporary work and older photographic practices. At the core of BPB12 is a concern with the possibilities of photography as both a tool and a process: a means of understanding the world, and an active force in shaping it.
