Hauptausstellung des Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festivals 2024
Interest in flâneurism within the practice of street photography is resurging but the concept remains problematic for its white male-centred gaze on urbanity. In this new exhibition-in-the-making, renowned artist and Guggenheim Fellow Zun Lee revisits his own street photography practice to depart from the usual focus on wandering. Lee proposes lingering and loitering as reclamation strategies to subvert the way modern technocultural urban spaces regulate wayward bodies. Rather than moving/observing, street photography can be reframed as an active way of destabilizing the urban environement and its sociality, producing alternate ways of understanding and reshaping our world, for bodies behind and in front of the camera.
Besuch der Ausstellung im Goethe-Institut Toronto vom 2. Mai bis 29. Mai mittwochs, donnerstags und freitags von 11 bis 17 Uhr.
