Fotografiska Berlin–the new museum for photography–proudly announces Fotografiska DAYS: a three-day event program under the main topic CULTURAL FABRIC – Rereading the Relationship Between Art and Fashion Practices.
In a world of omnipresent digitalization and brand awareness, images and narratives–the key currencies of a visually driven culture–yield the power to both form and transform cultural currents. What multiplicities of meaning are we assigning to these visual codes and
how can we unpack them? The program aims to examine the power of visual language in relation to art and fashion by rereading diverse image- and brand-making strategies, including their creative and subversive potential. We want to address the instability of images in different media, alongside the emancipatory potential of their consumption and interpretation.
Seven artists, both Berlin-based and international, will explore the main theme in a group exhibition, showcasing their work at Atelier Gardens (former BUFA). The multidisciplinary show is curated by Marina Paulenka (Director of Exhibitions at Fotografiska Berlin and former Artistic Director of Organ Vida and Unseen) and Thomas Schäfer (Exhibition Manager at Fotografiska Berlin), in collaboration with Lea Vene
(Curator and Fashion Theoretician). With their practices operating at the intersection of fashion and photography, we are presenting the following artists: Julie Poly, Carlota Guerrero, and Mous Lamrabat, and many more.
The grand opening will take place on Thursday, 23rd of March, 8pm.
