Photo art: to sell or not to sell?
Cross-border project of Eksperimenta!
Exhibition opened: 19.10-3.12.2017
How to involve economic processes in art and photography, and why? Can photography serve market-based purposes and still remain artistic at the same time? What kind of photography can be sold and how to price it? Will I be able to support myself if I decide to become a photographer? These and other questions will be answered in the photography workshop series during Eksperimenta! Participants will be divided into small international teams where they address these topics and establish substantive cross-cultural cooperation. They will be given practical tasks, and with the help of the organizers they will set up exhibitions of their photos. Who knows, maybe some of the exhibition visitors are willing to enliven the economy and buy the very fresh fruits of the workshop?
Exhibition at Museum of Photography: Selfexperiment!
Self portraiture – whether and how to relate to the environment? The workshop deals with portraits and landscapes, connects people, nature and the city, sees others and finds oneself. The effect of a mirror can occur either directly in the camera or in external objects.
Exhibition at Sokos Hotel Estoria: Eksperimentoria!
The interior and its details, architectural views, different spatial perspectives, forms and patterns are under observation. All of these views are combined with people: participants will take pictures and pose as well. The result ends up both in classic and unconventional photos.
