Dona Schwartz Exhibition at Photographic Social Vision

Dona Schwartz is featured in "Domestic Ritual" the group exhibition at Photographic Social Vision located in Barcelona, Spain.

The home is the scene of a great number of rituals. These may be repetitive – like birthdays, the Christmas holidays or daily meals – or occasional – like dinners with family or friends or house warming or engagement parties. The ritual may be experienced by the members taking part as a festive act or seen as the imposition of a convention, as the forced observance of a series of protocols transmitted through tradition. Thus, domestic ceremonies can either be presented as a mechanism that makes it possible to strengthen social relationships or as the staging of a fictitious harmony behind which is hidden rancor and violence leading to the possible destruction of communal ties.
