A Project with the Class for Photography and New Media, Mozarteum University Salzburg
April 24—October 10, 2021
During the runtime the exhibition is structured into:
Act 1: 24. April 24—June 20, 2021
Act 2: June 24—August 22, 2021
Act 3: Aug 26—Oct 10, 2021
The exhibition by the photography and new media class at Mozarteum University Salzburg presents works that grew out of a probing examination of different manifestations of racism. Taking a wide range of approaches, the students reflect on everyday and structural racism, question social identities, and inquire into forms of the critique of power and avenues for self-empowerment. They draw connections to other forms of discrimination and address the mechanisms of social media as well as neo-colonialist practices in tourism. Their own positions within cultures and economies in Austria and how they tie in with their perspectives on racism are a central concern throughout. The exhibition is conceived as a space of negotiation, changing over the course of its duration to illustrate an ongoing discussion that accommodates unanswered questions, fragmentary arguments, and changes of direction no less than finished works.
The project exhibition with the Class for Photography and New Media, Mozarteum University Salzburg takes place parallel to the exhibition This World Is White No Longer. Views of a Decentered World.
Every Wednesday from 6 to 6:45 pm, one or more members of the Sculpting Feminism Reading Group are reading texts, chosen from an expanding feminist reading list, via Zoom. On the evenings of May 12, May 26, and June 9, the whole group will assemble in their regular session. As a visitor to the museum, you can join and log yourself into Zoom.
