Real / Ideal


Date: Nov 15-17, 2019
Time: 10:00 am - 06:00 pm IST
Venue: Goethe-Institut Chennai


Photographs are omnipresent in our urban and social environments. We encounter them online and offline on many levels. The boundaries between commercial images and all others are fluid. In the three-day workshop, the mentor will explore the relationship between the public image and the public space in which it is embedded: what do these mostly idealized representations represent (when we ignore the text level)? 

Age Limit: The workshop is open to all interested people aged 16 and above. 


Cost: Nil (Lunch provided all 3 days for indoor sessions)
