„Flucht ins Bild – Die fotografische Darstellung von Migration und die Medien“ Podiumsdiskussion mit Screening / Ostkreuz-Fotografen und Gäste

Jörg Brüggemann/OSTKREUZ – Flüchtlinge erreichen die Insel Kos, August 2015, Kos, Griechenland, Europa

Das Thema der Flucht beherrscht derzeit alle Medienbereiche. Es ist „ein epochales und sehr fotogenes Thema“ (Photonews 2/2016). Der Einfluss von Fotografen, Agenturen und Medien auf die Darstellung von Flucht und Migration ist enorm. Deswegen haben alle Akteure eine zunehmend hohe Verantwortung. Ostkreuz-Fotografen diskutieren gemeinsam mit Gästen aus Bildredaktionen und -agenturen über die fotografische Darstellung von Migration und den medialen Umgang mit ihr.

Die Veranstaltung spannt einen Bogen, der vom Entstehungsprozess der Bilder vor Ort über die Distributionswege bis zur finalen Auswahl in den Bildredaktionen reicht. Alle Beteiligten eint das Anliegen, Flucht und Migration bildlich darzustellen. Spannungsfelder entstehen dort, wo Intentionen aufeinanderprallen – und die sind bei Fotografen, Bildagenturen und Redaktionen durchaus unterschiedlich. Oder verfolgen am Ende des Prozesses nicht alle Beteiligten doch dieselben Ziele?

 

 

Ostkreuz Verein für Fotografie

wurde von den Fotografen der Agentur Ostkreuz initiiert, um kulturelle Projekte unabhängig von kommerzieller Verwertbarkeit zu realisieren. Wir stehen für eine Fotografie, welche die Verhältnisse unserer Zeit abbildet und reflektiert.

Als Verein engagieren wir uns für die Sichtbarmachung von künstlerischer und dokumentarischer Fotografie, die dieser Haltung entspricht. In der Präsentation von Fotografie sehen wir einen substanziellen Beitrag zum gesellschaftlichen Leben, zur aktuellen Bildkultur und zum Diskurs über Fotografie.

Als Forum regen wir die Begegnung mit und den Austausch über zeitgenössische Autorenfotografie an und fördern die Auseinandersetzung mit ihren Bedingungen und Perspektiven.

Documentary screening: Rafea – Solar Mama

10397817_1093990250617039_4159065443117385948_n

 

Join us for the screening of the documentary Solar Mama on May 27th at Urban Spree. If the weather allows us, this screening will take place outdoor.

“Rafea is a Bedouin woman who lives with her daughters in one of Jordan’s poorest desert villages on the Iraqi border.
She is given a chance to travel to India to attend the Barefoot College, where illiterate grandmothers from around the world are trained in 6 months to be solar engineers. If Rafea succeeds, she will be able to electrify her village, train more engineers, and provide for her daughters.
Even when she returns as the first female solar engineer in the country, her real challenge will have just begun.
Will she find support for her new venture? Will she be able to inspire the other women in the village to join her and change their lives? And most importantly, will she be able to re-wire the traditional minds of the Bedouin community that stand in her way?”

Screening: SHE'S BEAUTIFUL WHEN SHE'S ANGRY

11149304_1079693495380048_3326743502905544203_n 1st of May is a day for solidarity, mobilization and demonstrations and we want to celebrate and get inspired with a screening of the documentary SHE’S BEAUTIFUL WHEN SHE’S ANGRY.

SHE’S BEAUTIFUL WHEN SHE’S ANGRY resurrects the buried history of the outrageous, often brilliant women who founded the modern women’s movement from 1966 to 1971. SHE’S BEAUTIFUL takes us from the founding of NOW, with ladies in hats and gloves, to the emergence of more radical factions of women’s liberation; from intellectuals like Kate Millett to the street theatrics of W.I.T.C.H. (Women’s International Conspiracy from Hell!). Artfully combining dramatizations, performance and archival imagery, the film recounts the stories of women who fought for their own equality, and in the process created a world-wide revolution. Language: English Length: 92 min

There will be two screenings, one at 19:00 and one at 21:00
