Salon Revue Politisch fotografieren

SALON REVUE: Political Photography

7. November 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.

Unlike most voters, a photographer gets to know politicians personally. Proximity and distance play a special role in an area to which »normal citizens« are not allowed access. What kind of images do politicians allow today? What kind of work ethic characterizes a photojournalist? On the other hand, photography itself is in focus. Can the medium still stand for modernity and authenticity today? How is the role of photography to be understood politically?

A conversation with Ostkreuz photographer Maurice Weiss, whose goal is to break the rules of staging in politics, and Boris Kochan, President of Deutscher Designtag and founder of the agency Kochan & Partner, moderated by Miriam Zlobinski.

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