“The Day Will Come” is the motto of its sixth edition which is dedicated to the future of the image and of photography. International conference, artist talks, workshops, portfolio reviews, parties, nightly slideshows are the highlights of the event.
From 18 June until 31 July, the LFI gallery presents with the show „Refugee Perspectives“ works of the three photographers Dominic Nahr, Ayman Oghanna and Giulio Rimondi.
2 crises, 3 perspectives, 1 topic
Two photographers travelled to Iraq to document the situation of refugees and displaced persons – close to the people and with a firm eye on the overall setting. A third photographer avoided focussing on the people.
Opening: 17 June, 19.00 CET
24 June, 19.00 CET
Dominic Nahr, Ayman Oghanna, Giulio Rimondi
The three photographers talk about their pictures – about the differences, commonalities and also the possibilities of continuing to take relevant pictures in the future.
26 June, 19.00 CET
„Images of Crises – The Crisis of Images“ with Jutta Schein (Die Zeit), Karen Fromm (University of Applied Sciences Hannover), Jens Radü (Der Spiegel magazine) and Dominic Nahr.
So many crises, so many pictures – the overwhelming mass of it all has a deadening effect. Every day, through every means, we are bombarded with terrifying images. The impression is that the only way to create a distinction is by producing even more spectacular pictures showing even greater suffering. Does this put more pressure on photographers and the media? Does this result in an increase in the risk of manipulation and voyeurism? We aim to explore these questions in a discussion group with our guests.
