Official opening of Laterna Magica Museum for Visual Knowledge, 11 October 2019 at 18:00 – 24:00
A multiple event exhibition about photographic strategy, the constitution of an image, and what it serves. The exhibition Phantasmagoria and the performance series Stateless Mind take us through a visual journey into the mental space of the imaginary. It negotiates and explores the territorial tension of images and their diverging interpretations at the crossroad of a tense contemporary geopolitical world.
The invited artists are involved in performative presentation, documentation, communication, and articulation. Their works reflect on distanced history and periodic visual memory to help us reconstruct the restless status of images, the imaginary, and the territoriality of difference and otherness.Read more
