Minimum is a cultural association focused on the language of contemporary photography and visual research. Through the lenses of photography, the association has conducted different projects. In addition to strictly artistic events, such as open talks, participation in photography exhibition, partnerships with existing local cultural associations in Sicily and other Italian Regions, Minimum has actively organized social projects directed at young people and refugees. Minimum’s team, made of 4 photographs and 1 human rights researcher and writer, has worked in this sense with activities of awareness raising through the means of photography and with workshops.
For example, in collaboration with #Dysturb in 2016, an organization of photojournalists born in Paris, Minimum studio managed an urban exhibition in the Sicilian town of Menfi aimed at raising awareness on several socio-political issues, like the current refugee crisis.
In another project, named SuperFotoColla, Minimum worked with children of refugees and migrants in the Sicilian town of Gibellina during a photography workshop. Minimum studio is further dedicated to the promotion of editorial photography, and in particular is curating the realization of a book by two of its members focused on the smuggling of migrants from Africa to Europe, called LIMBO. One of Minimum’s members, Eileen Quinn, is a PhD Candidate specialized on migrant smuggling and irregular migration to Europe, and therefore future projects will also be focussing on creating potentials to diminish discrimination against immigrants, while increasing integration and communication between migrants and local citizens.
