Blurring the Lines goes to the European Cultural Centre in Venice


Chair of Photography, Klaus Fruchtnis, will introduce the project "Blurring the Lines" started at PCA in 2016

Photography has evolved since its invention, and the use of different processes and tools goes along with its evolution. This event aims to reflect on the medium of photography asking where photography is going nowadays. Indeed, with the invention of digital photography, the medium has become more accessible and less technically craft-based, which demands a complete re-thinking of its definition and aesthetic approach. An international group of experts has been brought together to discuss the topic and to propose new scenarios.
