Welcome to an Open Presentation by the course Critical Images May 16 where the students will present their projects, a publication and hold a Fishbowl conversation.
Critical Images is a post master course at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm, where professionals in different disciplines come together to build a knowledge on how to work with images in a dignified and ethical way.
Throughout the year, and with the contribution from philosophers, linguists, lawyers, art historians and filmmakers, we have been working with the concept of the right to the image in an image saturated culture. The aim is to find ways to move forward as visual arts practitioners, implement the knowledge gathered throughout two semesters and finally to open the dialogue with the broader public.
May 16, kl 5-9pm at Galleri Mejan we invite you to this dialogue, Fishbowl conversation*.
