This edition of Malmö Fotobiennal celebrates 50 years since the release of the essay The Society of the Spectacle by French philosopher Guy Debord. Debord devoted his book to understand the structure in which we are living in, where the social relations are interpolated by a society of representations, the being is replaced into having and appearing. To be is to consume, and the images serve as a mediator of the spectacle. We take his work and his concepts as a starting point for Malmö Fotobiennal 2017, an attempt to understand how these ideas would apply to the use of Photography today.
