The digital age has changed photography: images can travel around the globe in a matter of seconds. They report events in real-time, and entangle us in the contradictions of a globalised world. How can photography be implemented today in ways that do justice to the complexity of our present times?
Anne König and Jan Wenzel explore this question at the upcoming f/stop festival (25 June to 3 July 2016) in Leipzig, together with a number of distinguished guest curators, artists and industry experts. Exhibition in venues across the city including the former cotton spinning mill (Leipziger Baumwollspinnerei) are complemented by an extensive programme of forums, artist talks and film screenings.
American artist Monica Haller will discuss her long-term endeavour, the 'Veterans Book Project', over the course of six workshops. Another highlight is the chance to visit the locations of historical reportages shot in Leipzig as part of the 'f/stop In-Situ Parcour' – the tours will explore the work of Gerda Taro, Margaret Bourke-White, Lee Miller and Robert Capa.
