‘Autophoto’ is dedicated to photography’s relationship to the automobile. Since its invention, the automobile has reshaped our landscape, extended our geographic horizons and altered our conception of space and time. The exhibition will show how the car provided photographers with a new subject, new point of view and new way of exploring the world. Organised in series, it will bring together 500 works made by 100 historic and contemporary artists from around the world including Jacques-Henri Lartigue, Lee Friedlander, Rosângela Renno and Yasuhiro Ishimoto. he exhibition will also include other projects such as a series of car models that cast a fresh eye on the history of automobile design.
