iGNANT magazine and HVW8 Gallery collaborate on a group exhibition with photographers from around the globe, playing with the subject “All Inclusive“. Sometimes critical, often sarcastic yet humorous, their works deal with vacationing and the stereotypical images that one might think of hearing the term “All Inclusive“. The artists reveal a shady side of maximum recreation on a cheap basis, showing us how tourists in uence the image of a city or landscape, or simply spark interest with an easy-going aesthetic. In a time where everyone is striving for ultimate fun and personal development, “All Inclusive“ is the analogy for our attitude of self-management and self-enhancement.
