Title: Photographic Practices, Institutions, and Platforms in China: An Invitation to Re-Visit a Field-Trip
This presentations invites you to look back with me on my latest field-trip to China (28 December 2019-16 January 2020). During this trip I interviewed scholars, curators and photographers, walked with photographers in their ‘hunting’ grounds, and explored a range of exhibitions and other spaces for photography. This trip is part of a larger project that hopefully will result in a book.
