KBr is an annual project to give visibility to young talent from Barcelona’s leading photography schools (IEFC, Idep Barcelona, Elisava – Faculty of Design and Engineering of Barcelona, and Grisart). This third edition presents the work of Alan Balzac (Galicia, 1999), Ivette Blaya (Santa Margarida de Montbui, Barcelona, 2000), Rocío Madrid (Melilla, 1988) and Lucía Morón (Buenos Aires, 1997).

Through a variety of creative processes involving analogue and digital photography, collage, manipulation of archival images and video, the selected projects explore gender, social and familial mandates, as well as the body and the border: Alan Balzac proposes an intimate reflection on the search, encounter and destruction of identity; Ivette Blaya uses the thought-provoking figure of the bonsai to reflect on the dynamics of body domination that regulate our society; Rocío Madrid offers a look at the border city of Melilla – where she grew up – through an autobiographical and personal filter, and Lucía Morón invites us to question the paradigm of romantic love, with the desire to break with some cultural structures that continue to be maintained by inertia.
