Talk - The emergence of photographers’ collectives. Does unity make strength?

  • Three Shadows Photography Art Centre (map)

This year, Jimei x Arles International Photo Festival shows the work of three photographic collectives: Blank Paper, which emerged in Madrid (Spain) in the early 2000s at a time of profound economic crisis; Ruang MES 56, an artist-run space established in Yogyakarta (Indonesia) in 2002; the real (nominated for 2017 Jimei x Arles Discovery Award), a recently established trio of Chinese photographers born in the 1990s, whose work explores the frontier of performance and photography. This talk is an opportunity to discuss the strategies that lead artists who unite in photographic collectives - a group of photographers working together under the same name - in their struggle against a world in crisis, both economically and socially, in which photography drowns in a mass of images while the identity of an artist arises or disappears according to modes and policies.

Moderator: Sam Stourdzé or Bérénice Angremy

Speakers: Blank Paper (Sonia Berger, Julian Baron, David Hornillos)、Ruang MES 56 (Wimo Ambala Bajang), Nie Xiaoyi.
