For TalkSeePhotography’s October event Saxa Art and Books brings the Finnish Photography Museums Chief Curator Anna-Kaisa Rastenberger and Chief educational officer Erja Salo to Glasgow. Rastenberger and Salo who have been wrking closely on a number of the museums projects will talk about the museums work and in specific their exhibition #snapshot. #Snapshot examines online visual habits and how they have changed our perseption of the photography. The exhibition is the result of a long term research colaboration into the social phenomenon of picture sharing and visual literacy. As an exhintion it transgresses the limits between art and generic uses of the photography made by ordinary people to be shared on Flickr, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, Tumblr and art commenting on the phenomenon by international artists such as: Catherine Balet, Erik Kessels, Niklas Kullström and Sisse Stroyer. As research it respons as well as uncovers the pheonoema it regards.
Rastenberger and Salo invites us to to take a look at the one of the most complex developments in contemporary society and how our anxieties hopes and artistic responces are expressed in our use of photography online. The exhibition and accompanying book is co-produced with Futurice Oy, University of Tampare School of Communication, Media and Theatre and Alto Universities Department of Media Technology.
