  • Galerija Media Nox Židovska ulica 12, 2000 Maribor, Slovenia (map)

Galerija Media Nox v sklopu umetniške rezidence umetnice in fotografinje Eva Sajovic, ki prihaja iz Londona, vabi na učni laboratorij -->
Learning Lab: UNLEARNING THE ROLE OF THE ARTIST / Part 2,
ki se bo kot celodnevni dogodek odvil v četrtek, 13. 7., med 10. in 17. uro v prostorih galerije.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dogodek je brezplačen, število mest je omejeno, zato je nujna predhodna prijava do 8. 7. na media.nox@mkc.si
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Learning Lab bo izpostavil vlogo fotografije v sodobnem času - predvsem skozi problematiko migracij, vendar na nekoliko drugačen način - skozi ekološko-sociološki vidik:

// FOTOGRAFIJA KOT ORODJE AGENCIJ IN EMANCIPACIJE // je osrednja tema dotičnega Learning Lab-a / part 2.

Udeleženci se boste posvetili prespraševanju vloge fotografije v sodobnem času, ko jo v veliki meri diktirajo agencije. Je lahko fotografija orodje emancipacije? Kakšna je njena družbena vloga danes?
Ker se umetnica Eva Sajovic ukvarja z ekološko-sociološkim vidikom migracij, bo na Learning Lab-u izpostavljeno tudi vprašanje klimatskih sprememb, ki tako ali drugače vplivajo na migriranje.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SODELUJOČI STE VABLJENI, DA S SEBOJ PRINESETE FOTOGRAFIJE z motivi ljudi/krajine, ki so tako ali drugače povezane z vidiki migracij, klimatskih sprememb in podobnih tematik.

// KAJ JE t.i. LEARNING LAB? //

Učni laboratorij oz. Learning Lab je konstruktivna oblika sodelovanja med kulturniki, aktivisti, predstavniki civilne družbe, raziskovalci, oblikovalci politik ... skozi dialog, ki premika meje uveljavljenega. Udeleženci iščejo odgovore na splošna vprašanja perečih družbenih vprašanj, pri čemer je še posebej v ospredju tema migracij.

Learning Lab (učni laboratorij) je participatorna oblika diseminacije znanja in raziskovalni proces obenem. Je praktična delavnica, dogodek, panela, okrogla miza, projekcija ali pogovor.

Learning Lab bo potekal v ANGLEŠKEM JEZIKU.

Gostji Learning Laba bosta ob umetnici Evi Sajovic še Agnes Czajka (Open University) ter Áine O’Brien (Counterpoints Arts). Projekt je nastal v koprodukciji s Terra Vera (SLO) in je bil prvič realiziran v Tate Exchange London.
