Under the title Currency, the 8th Triennial of Photography Hamburg explores the value of photography in the 21st century. In the so-called "retinal age", in which the production, distribution, and consumption of photographic images has become ubiquitous and we have learned to see the present and the past photographically and to order them through a lens, the digital image is in constant circulation as a highly topical exchange currency on social platforms. Extending the notion of economic currency to art and visual culture leads to a multi-layered exploration of photography and its role in canonization, classification, knowledge production, and visiual autonomy. In the form of essays and conversations, the reader to the symposium Lucid Knowledg: The Currency of the Photographic Image critically questions how photographs shape perceptions and shape experiences and discusses the extent to which new interpretive spaces and narratives only become visible through meticulous looking. 

With a large number of photo exhibitions and accompanying events in Hamburg museums, exhibition houses and galleries, the TRIENNALE DER PHOTOGRAPHIE takes a global look at current developments in photography. This year's Triennale kicked off with the international symposium Lucid Knowledge, which took place from Sept. 30 - Oct. 2, 2021.
