Lecture „Sehen lernen“

Our current researcher and coordinator Hannah Wiemer will hold the lecture „Sehen lernen. Solomon J. Solomon und die Interpretation militärischer Luftfotografie im Ersten Weltkrieg“ at the Symposium "Überwachende Blicke zwischen Politik, Religion und Technik" taking place in the Museum for Photography. The symposium and lecture will be held in German.

February 2017 will see the opening of two exhibitions at the Museum for Photography concerning the topic of surveillance. „Watching You, Watching Me: A Photographic Response to Surveillance“ is the result of a cooperation between Open Society Foundations – New York and Kunstbibliothek in Berlin. The exhibition „Das Feld hat Augen. Bilder des überwachenden Blicks“ was devised by Kunstbibliothek in Berlin. While the first exhibition displays contemporary artistic positions reflecting the topic, the second exhibition addresses itself to the task of presenting the history of surveillance. In this context the Museum for Photography is organizing a symposium that is examining political, iconographic and religious aspects of the surveilling gaze.
