Raised among the ruins of communism, the latest generation of New East photographers has reshaped the region’s image to capture its ongoing evolution and unshakable vibrancy.
From fashion and lifestyle to documentary and landscape, contemporary image-makers are capturing a changing region and reflecting on a charged historical legacy.
A new panel discussion from Calvert 22 Foundation is exploring this new photographic aesthetic and how it binds the region as whole.
Designed as an accompaniment to our latest group show Post-Soviet Visions: image and identity in the new Eastern Europe, and hosted by exhibition co-curator Ekow Eshun, the panel will include Dazed Arts and Culture editor Ashleigh Kane, Russia-born, London-based photographer Turkina Faso, and Estonian artist Maria Kapajeva.
It is the final part of a programme of events exploring New East art and culture, including a one-day fashion symposium in collaboration with the ICA and TrAIN: The Research Centre for Transnational Art, Identity and Nation, University of the Arts London.
