The Future of Landscape Photography
Artists Femke Herregraven and Mali Arun, along with Professor Katja Kwasek, delve deeper into the question of what role photography plays in how we relate to nature.

Notice: This event is sold out.

Femke Herregraven and Mali Arun both use innovative visual strategies to investigate how technological developments are fundamentally changing the relationship between humans and nature. While Herregraven explores how the landscape is increasingly subjected to capitalist forces, Arun's work revolves around the idea of ​​paradise and how tourism and technology appear to have produced an increasingly dystopian, man-made landscape.

Artists Femke Herregraven and Mali Arun will introduce their work during this evening, followed by an analysis by Katja Kwasek (professor of modern and contemporary art history, VU University Amsterdam) regarding her research into the Anthropocene. The evening will end with an open discussion and the opportunity to ask questions.

This event takes place on the occasion of the group exhibition On Earth - Imaging, Technology and the Natural World and the exhibition Foam 3h: Mali Arun - Paradisus. Visitors have the option to visit both exhibitions prior to the event.

Foam is supported by the BankGiro Loterij, De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek, City of Amsterdam, Foam Members, Olympus and the VandenEnde Foundation.
