For Talent Talks, each episode focusses on one artist aiming to evoke a conversation around their approach and contextualising it within the photography field while not forgetting the personal stories behind it. Each conversation features a special guest that offers an insight into the discourses surrounding a specific project. The series is hosted by Mirelva Berghout, curator of this year's Foam Talent exhibition.


About the speakers

Barbara Gregov is a writer and curator interested in feminism, girlhood, and queerness in popular culture and contemporary art. She holds a Master’s degree in Comparative Literature and has substantial experience in writing and editing, as well as in coordinating, curating, and producing exhibitions, festivals, and other cultural programs. Currently, she is a member of the curatorial collective that runs the Organ Vida Photography Festival, an editor of Krilo – a feminist space for experimental writing, and a program coordinator at the LGBTIQ organization Zagreb Pride.

Born in Switzerland (1995), Pavo Marinovic is a Bosnian-Croatian photographer and visual artist who is traversing the fields of identity, conflict, and collective memory. Through photography, video, as well as installation Pavo’s practice explores the state of territory in transit as well as generational transmission. An approach that swings between documentary and fiction allows Pavo to deconstruct and re-explore forced perspective. Pavo today works and lives between Switzerland and Paris.
