This three-day workshop gathers international scholars and artists to reflect upon photographic practices that focus on the representations of natural and built environments in contemporary Europe. From different disciplinary perspectives that include art history, architecture, geography and archaeology, speakers address the many pressing issues that representations of natural and man-made landscapes bring into focus: national identity of the territory, political and historical context of urban expansion and the effect of human activity on land. The workshop furthermore gives an opportunity to identify elements of change and continuity in contemporary development of landscape as a genre, and how photography and lens-based media affect its visual models of representation.

The workshop features artist talks: with Thomas Struth and Beate Gütschow.

The workshop is organized by Olga Smith and Stefanie Gerke.

It is presented with the support of KOSMOS Programme at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and the Verein zur Förderung des Instituts für Kunst- und Bildgeschichte.

Attendance is free, no registration required. Language of the workshop is English.
