Join us for an evening conversation with photographers Joe Dilworth and Sebastian Mayer. Readers will know that a selection of images and anecdotes from each photographer’s ‘life with music’ featured in the first and second issues of the magazine, and together with artist, photographer, professor & critic Allison Wade, we’ll gather in Berlin for a talk show at Smaragd.
Our title for the night suggests the talk won’t only be about approaches to looking and the stories behind the pressing and releasing of the shutter but also publicity, representation and PR in music culture today…and yesterday. Accompanied by a slideshow, we’ll talk about how artists across the industry have crafted and presented their image(s) alongside their music. We’ll pry and listen to opinions and anecdotes from how these two photographers have communicated with artists’ ideas and intents— for the iconic or just the opposite: rip-it-up and on-to-the-next. We’ll also share thoughts on how the photographers’ ideas and images have gone through publishing and censorship processes and I don’t doubt we’ll get to our present moment: in which artists represent and broadcast themselves across multiple platforms and the speed, value and effect of these communications. This is set to be an engaging, fun, critical and of course, participatory (Q & A) and unpredictable conversation.
This event is FREE.
Drink service and light fare will be available and an ‘after party’ is TBA at the event. Also, space is limited at Smaragd so please consider an RSVP on the Facebook event page.
