What is a truthful image in a mendacious world?
Can photography be employed as a tool to desire differently?
Can our cameras be used to touch, feel and move?
What are the images we need to unlearn?
And what are the images that make us act?
Over the course of 4 months ten students of the Photography Department of the Rietveld Academie have been formulating the core questions motivating their artistic practices. Examining themes such as queer forms of life and desire, the end of the world as we know it, the need for female empowerment, illusory representations of romantic love, the limitations of human communication, and the use of practices of quilting and graffiti as a political tools, they have each explored different modes of research, ranging from reading to image gathering and from writing to image making.
On 25 January they will present some first artistic responses to their questions. We hope you will join us for this event filled with multi media installations, screenings and performative readings.
Deelnemende kunstenaars zijn: Tasio Bidegain, Dora Lionstone, Sofie Bredholt, Marta Capilla Urbano, Shreya Desouza, Tomás Dudley Baker de Castro Feijó, Alma Kim, Luca Penning, Aurélie Sorriaux and Alizé Wachthausen.
