(Un)identical Generations: the optics of photography. Brochure + seminar

What makes each new generation unique: the specific context or a gap in the system of knowledge transfer that forces them to start ‘from a blank canvas’ each time? What does the (non-)uniformity of generations consist in, and how can this be captured with the lens of a camera? In the second issue of Laboratory of Contemporary Art (which you can get access to via a link below), curator Anna Potyomkina and the artist-photographer Anton Malynovskyi try and illustrate the latter and analyze these questions through the work of Anton himself, as well as that of other people working in contemporary Ukrainian photography. 

During the online seminar (01.10.2020, 7 PM) Anna and Anton will present the issue and have a Q&A. The brochure and the online seminar could be useful to parents, representatives of art schools and Centres for Child and Youth Creativity, and all those who are interested in this medium on a basic level.
