The fourth club event of EAA PHOTO 20 will be held in EKKM Cafe in order to celebrate the 20thanniversary of the department of photography at the Estonian Academy of Arts. The event will start at 6pm on October 24thand the central theme of the discussion is “Photography on the Open Field”. The discussion will be held in English.
Perhaps the term “photography” – that literally means “drawing with light” – is too humble for covering the diversity of contemporary cultural, social, scientific and military practices it signifies today.The rigidity of a singular image is suspended in tension against the incessant circulation of data streams, organising space and power in ways that, more often than not, remain invisible to the human eye. What are the processes and disciplines beyond art theory that artists follow in order to make interesting things with photography and pay attention to what photography does to the world?
The discussion is moderated by Kristel Raesaar; participants are Marge Monko, Maija Rudovska, Hirohisa Koike and Paul Paper.
Ice cream will be served by Chicks on Icecream; music by DJ Marta Vaarik
