the exhibition takes palce within the Fotograf Festival X
The exhibition is based on a long-term collaboration between students. Based on a preparatory workshop for Fotograf Festival: Uneven Ground, international students at Prague’s FAMU and Braunschweig’s HBK started a discussion about the terms of otherness and the encounter. Inspired by conversations with artists in attendance and in exchanges about their own works, You the other I was first presented as a short-term show in the gallery Panel. During the course of a follow-up seminar at HBK, shaped by the experience of the Covid-19 pandemic, the discussion was reinforced by notions of self-perception and exchange in the public sphere. In the photographic, video and performance works presented here, questions of the encounter, transgression and ways of looking at the other free from an exoticizing gaze are being negotiated.
