The third edition of reGeneration, an exhibition project launched by the Musée de l’Elysée (Lausanne, Switzerland) in 2005, with the second edition in 2010, was devoted to the international emerging photographic scene. Following the model of the two previous editions, 350 art schools and centres for artistic training around the world were contacted to submit the work of their five most promising students.

reGeneration3 brings together 50 artists of 25 different nationalities, representing some 40 international art institutions. The artists selected encompass a broad vision of the interests and practices of the emerging artistic scene, selected on both a visual and theoretical basis to represent the diversity of photography today.

From Switzerland the following artists were part of the selection: Magdalena Baranaya, Giacomo Bianchetti, Delphine Burtin, Emilie De Battista, Michael Etzensperger, Loan Nguyen, Laurence Rasti and Simon Rimaz.

 

The exhibition is divided into three thematic sections: ‘documentary subjects’, ‘new expressions’ and ‘the question of memory and the dematerialisation of the image’. The 50 artists selected encompass a broad vision of the interests and practices of the emerging artistic scene, selected on both a visual and theoretical basis to represent the diversity of photography today. The participating artists come from a wide range of countries: India, Poland, Czech Republic, Cambodia, New Zealand, Switzerland, the United States and the United Kingdom.
