The exhibition, organised by the Cabildo de Lanzarote Data Centre. It is displaying a wide range of carefully selected reprints of postcards of the island that have been made since the 20th Century. Highlighting the role of the postcard as a means of representing and mythologising aspects of collective memory.
One of the objectives of the exhibition is to reclaim the postcard’s rich heritage and history. Furthermore, it will emphasise their aesthetic and graphical aspects. The work that many photographers have produced for postcards made of the island, which the exhibition’s images will demonstrate.
The exhibition takes us on a historical journey of the postcard in Lanzarote. From the very first postcards of the island, printed towards the end of the 20th Century, right up to final years of the 20th Century. We will see the commercial decline of the postcard and a change in the way postcards are used.
The exhibition will remain open during La Casa Amarilla opening hours, from Monday to Friday at 10am to 8pm, and Saturdays from 10am to 2pm.
