Over the last few years\, Spain’s airports have gradually ad opted new techniques\, designs and technologies\, which have turned them in to avant-garde buildings. The Aena Contemporary Art Collection lives in air ports\, and has been infected by their innovative architecture and engineer ing. The Fundación Aena Photography Prize\, originally an extraordinary awa rd\, was created in 2005 to mark the Foundation’s 10th anniversary\, as a w ay of opening up its collection to include photography. The prize was award ed in 2007 and 2009\, and from 2010 onwards became established as a regular \, annual commitment to the sponsorship of photography as a fine art. As a result\, the collection has been enriched by eighteen photographs –the thre e prize-winners of each year – by photographers such as Victoria Diehl\, Pa co Polán\, Rosell Meseguer and Almalé/Bondía. Aena has also added other pie ces to its art collection\, including work by Alberto García-Alix\, Chema M adoz\, Chema Alvargonzalez\, Santiago Sierra and Daniel Canogar.

This exhibition marks the project’s coming out\, in that the whole coll ection of contemporary photography – usually on loan to airports around the country – will be on show to the public. The photographs reflect a range o f artistic concerns\, including the preservation of nature and culture\, pr otests against social injustice\, or meditations on dehumanised spaces. The highlights of the exhibition are two recently-acquired videoart pieces by José Manuel Ballester and Tim White-Sobiesky.
