An Interview with Xavier Ribas

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Xavier Ribas is a photographer. Informed by a background in social anthropology, his work examines the often peripheral landscapes in which histories are shaped and contested: the tightly enforced borders of Spanish enclaves in North Africa; weapons factories embedded in British cities; the disparate global sites connected by the commodity of Chilean nitrate. These investigations are presented using image, text and archival material in sprawling networks of interconnected exhibitions, talks and publications. A lecturer at the University of Brighton, he has exhibited at MACBA in Barcelona, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam and George Eastman House in Rochester, NY, among many others.
