Photobook | 31.05.2015
How do we experience works of art, and how do we come into conflict with them? What do we think of them, and how do we react to them? These are just some of the questions we will be asking when we make festival photobooks.
We encounter art every day – during school trips, walking with our family and friends, and sometimes even by chance, for example looking at a poster on an advertising pillar. Krakow Photomonth is a unique event that offers the opportunity to visit gallery spaces and to see and experience diverse photographic spectacles, and more besides.
This is why we will be using the workshop to discuss the photographs and works that can be seen at this year’s festival and to get to know the way of presenting photos that is the photobook. We will consider what the works mean to us, the effect they have and what we can say about this experience.
Using the festival publications, sticking, cutting out, drawing, and taking photos, participants will all make their own photobook.
