When the word nostalgia was first used, it referred to medical-grade homesickness. Today, the term is always on our tongues, partly due to pop culture’s fascination with the past. This year, DCP IV takes nostalgia as its central theme: from rose-coloured glasses, to resurrecting the dead, and ruminating on what could have been. Each artist, using one 35mm disposable camera, engages their own nostalgia, creating a reflexive interrogation of memory, histories, and parallel temporalities; investigating the sweetness and sadness of loved things lost.
Featuring works by:
