Perimeter Talks w/ Katrin Koenning
Perimeter is thrilled to continue its new programming initiative for 2017: Perimeter Talks. Taking place approximately once a month on a Sunday afternoon, the series features lectures, panel discussions and more casual in-conversations with publishers, artists, curators, designers, writers and editors. The talks explore and address various themes and issues relating to contemporary photographic, art and design publishing – helping demystify, challenge and offer insight into publishing as a medium and a practice.
Our second talk for 2017 features Melbourne-based German photographer Katrin Koenning, whose debut book Astres Noir (Chose Commune, Paris) – which drew upon images that Koenning and Bangladeshi photographer Sarker Protick had made for their Instagram feeds – went on to become an international phenomenon, making the final shortlist of the prestigious 2016 Paris Photo-Aperture Photo Book Award and winning the 2016 Australian Photobook of the Year Award. The talk will explore the making of the project, Koenning's wider practice and the bleed between Instagram and more traditional photographic contexts.Where: Perimeter Books, 748 High Street, Thornbury.
When: Sunday March 12, 3pm-4pm.
Seating strictly limited. RSVP essential (firstname.lastname@example.org). $5 donation on the door.
