What power does the photography have as a medium in today’s debates on society? How can you view societal problems through artistic and aesthetic eyes, and why is it important to do so?
In connection with the 10-year anniversary of Copenhagen Photo Festival, we present a MandagsTalk in the spirit of photography.
This time, we’re lucky enough to be visited by Jana Sophia Nolle, a German photographer who works with the photograph in relation to societal contrasts, structures of power and buyer’s culture.
Her works revolve around homelessness in San Francisco. Jana Sophie Nolle portrays this complex matter in a new and original way – and puts to focus the ways in which we talk about this debate.
With her, she’ll have Perle Møhl, Master of Science in Sociology and postdoc in Anthropology, who, with her knowledge on visual anthropology, society, and digital media can give us a photo-theoretical, photo-methodical view on this, with a twist of social sciences.
Together, we’ll explore the photograph, materiality, originality, visuality, and photo-theories in order to expand our knowledge on what the photograph is and can, and how much it actually matters to us in our day-to-day life.
If you want to learn more about the role of photography in societal debates and how it affects our lives, this talk is for you!
We can’t wait to see you!
