EMOP Opening Days . Filtering the Future

Panel discussions and Talks – Podcasts

At the EMOP Opening Days of European Month of Photography Berlin 2016, the theme Filtering the Future will be in focus of the talks and panels. C/O Berlin has invited more than 30 internationally renowned photographers, curators, media experts, archivists und journalists to reflect and discuss this actual topic at the Amerika Haus.

Getting an overview of the constantly growing visual flood of images in our daily lives seems now like a Sisyphean task. In place of contemplative immersion in the imagery, the next captured moment immediately demands both our attention and intensive sharing. Whether it‘s media, the art market, agencies, cultural institutions, archives or even private use – dealing with the photographic image has long been defined by comprehensive digitization, omnipresent algorithms and inexpensive data storage. Rather than surrender or retreat, new technical solutions and cultural practices are in demand now more than ever. Arranging, sorting, filtering, editing, reviewing, categorizing and deleting seem less glamorous at first, but nevertheless re- main sensible and meaningful practices for the future.
