A workshop exploring the potential of documentary in the digital age.
For the past decade, Mishka Henner has developed a unique method of working that combines the masses of data available online with the ubiquity of digital photography. The results are radical new ways of seeing that have helped visualise previously hidden systems of power.
In this four-day workshop, Mishka will discuss his ideas in-depth, share his working methods, and collaborate with you to develop new and/or existing projects. This will involve exploring different online resources, shaping found material into visual responses, and discussing different ways how the work might circulate in the world.
The workshop is aimed at those with a burning curiosity and who are keen to make discoveries on an eclectic range of geo-political subjects.
This Workshop will take place in collaboration with TransEurope Co-ordinators.
