Exposing the Unexposed – Feminist Collectives and Street Photography
15 Nov 2020
4:30-5:30 PM IST
On the occasion of the exhibition Street. Life. Photography, Fotomuseum Winterthur is hosting a live-streamed online panel discussion with guests such as the Australian Unexposed Collective, the Head On Photo Festival and curators and artists from Australia and India. This event will discuss the importance and visibility of women*, intersex and non-binary artists within the international street photography scene. The focus will be on feminist collectives, which organise themselves via social media and work collaboratively, participatory and transnationally.
How can feminist collectives influence a male* dominated industry? How do they become part of established institutions? What role do social media play in mobilising the community and enabling exchange? And: What ethical and (cultural) political stance do feminist collectives take in the genre of street photography? These and further questions will be discussed.
