Book launch of “New Tactics – moving in a soft field” by Kirstine Autzen
København N, 2200 Danmark
7. June 2019 16:00 - 18:00
How do artists work with photography and the body in a culture, where we all take photographs every day? In a new interview book published by Galleri Image, four artists talk about contributing with tactical approaches to a culture saturated with images and controlled by large-scale political and commercial actors.
Today, photos affect our identity, our communication and play, and pictures with photographic elements even often replace the written word on the Internet, in text messages and on social apps. This development has been so radical that researchers often refer to this age as “post-photographic”. In the book, the artists Nanna Lysholt Hansen, Sandra Vaka Olsen, Valérie Collart and Kristoffer Ørum talk about how they see their own role in the context of a broader visual culture. The book is written by Kirstine Autzen, who will present the book at the event.
