SALON REVUE: Collective Gaps in the Gaze

11. December 2023 , 19:00

At regular intervals, Salon ReVue gives a space to current and relevant topics from ReVue magazine. New scientific findings and perspectives, innovative ideas and, of course, photography and questions of perception characterize the evening. Representatives of the practice enter into dialogue with scientists and exchange ideas with the audience. Thus, the evening is a joint walk between the disciplines.

On Monday, December 11, 2023, we are looking forward to an exciting evening on the topic of »Collective Gaps in the Gaze« with philosopher Mara Recklies, photographer Julius Matuschik and photographer Shirin Abedi.

How do cultural perspectives and prejudices influence our perception of stories? How does photography steer? Our individual, cultural backgrounds form perspectives through which we view and understand information differently, leading to a variety of interpretations. Where are the gaps in our collective vision? How can visual stereotypes be broken down? It’s about new images, new ideas, diverse approaches – a different narrative.

Mara Recklies combines philosophy and design theory in her research and is a research assistant at the Department of Design Science at Burg Giebichtenstein University of Art and Design Halle. Her research focuses on (design) criticism, interventions and resistant practices.

In addition to his work as a photographer, Julius Matuschik works for the Cameo Collective in socio-cultural projects of cultural and political education. As a photojournalist, he focuses on combining approaches of transcultural and constructive journalism with new narratives of digital visual storytelling.

Shirin Abedi works as a photographer. She emigrated from Tehran to Germany at the age of seven. Since then she has lived between two cultures. She combines her interest in photojournalism with the reflection of narratives and stereotypes.

Admission: 8 € | 5 €. The number of participants is limited. We recommend booking an online ticket, which you can purchase here.
