Sun, 21.06. New Perspectives on Documentary Practices
at Lumix Festival
The topic “New Perspectives on Documentary Practices” will reflect on the changing role of journalistic photography in today’s world. In particular, it examines current tendencies in visual-journalistic storytelling and the development of visual narrations that subvert the traditional viewing habits, expectations and stereotyping of classical documentary photographic narrative forms. With “New Perspectives on Documentary Practices” the LUMIX Festival in cooperation with [IMAGE MATTERS] establishes a regular platform, that focuses on possibilities and strategies in the field of tension between art, journalism and documentation. For this year’s festival, Dutch curator Iris Sikking has made a selection of 12 projects.
