6 views on deconstruction – A Mute Ocean, under the direction of Ola Lanko, Bienne Festival of Photography/Fotomuseum Wintherthur, Switzerland

Exhibition: 12 – 28 May, 2017
Opening: 11 May, 6pm
Location: Chipot

Photography today can take on multiple forms, both material and immaterial: from print to pixel, from the page to the screen, from static images to moving images. What are the challenges and opportunities for image-makers and editors who wish to critically explore the hybrid nature of photography? What are the contemporary practices in working with images and distributing them? What does editing mean in the age of information overflow, and how can we think of alternative publishing strategies for the new image? What are the new platforms for the “post-photographer”?
Four artists have been invited to discuss these themes in a series of workshops being offered to small groups of professionals, and to create works with the participants. The results of the workshops will later be exhibited in the context of the festival.

Curation: Marco de Mutiis and Hélène Joye-Cagnard / Image+ is produced in collaboration with Fotomuseum Winterthur’s SITUATIONS programme.
