Photography is many things. In this lecture, Karolina Gembara proposes to reset our thinking and consider its very basic quality - its toolness. What does it do? What do I do with it? How can I utilise it? Can I make any change using my camera? Can this change be good? Going over several examples of the so-called activist photography, engaged projects, participatory programmes and her own practise, Karolina Gembara would like to discuss how the medium we use could become an extension of democratic and inclusive processes. She will also try to reflect on the anthropological burdens and privilege traps photographers should pay attention to while working with ‘sensitive’ topics. During the meeting, we will have an opportunity to bounce off some ideas and questions with an invited guest - an expert working with excluded communities.
