Page Not Found is delighted to invite you to a talk by artists Batia Suter and Delphine Bedel. This event will take place offline, in the project space of Page Not Found.
This event marks the sixth and final instalment of the Tangible Photography program, which started at the beginning of 2020 and was postponed due to the pandemic. The dematerialization of the image created for some artists with a photographic practice a desire for tangibility, that is: for a materiality accessible by touch. Publishing appears in this context as a natural strategy to answer this desire and to reinstate the photographic image in its materiality.
Delphine Bedel will present her research on the emergence of the term “feminism” and its historical relation to publishing. Batia Suter will discuss her practice together with Delphine.
Delphine Bedel is an artist, lecturer, writer, and publisher. Her principal topics of interest are media, feminist publishing, politics of memory and the global circulation of images. She is the founder of Meta/Books, and co-founder of the Roadmap for Equality in the Arts in the Netherlands.
The Swiss-born, Amsterdam-based artist Batia Suter produces monumental installations of digitally manipulated images, and works on photo-animations, image sequences and collages, often using found historical pictures. The underlying themes of Suter's practice are the 'iconification' and 'immunogenicity' of images, and the circumstances by which they become charged with new associative values.
This is a free event. Reservation is required.
