Screen Walk with Dina Kelberman

Dina Kelberman will discuss her work with appropriated networked images and her tendency to meticulously collect and organise pictures from the media of everyday life. Her presentation will be followed by a desktop performance titled This Fan May Not Be Replaced You Just Don't Know The Future, showcasing "a landscape of fascinating tedium” composed of found YouTube videos.

In Screen Walks, a series of live-streamed explorations of digital spaces, selected artists and researchers investigate artistic strategies taking place online. The project gives an insight into practices using the screen as a medium. From re-contextualising pictures found on online marketplaces and uncovering data brokers’ invisible circulation of images to analysing in-game photography and the social, political and economic implications of games – Screen Walks examines various approaches, offers a behind-the-scenes look at artists’ work and uncovers new, current and forgotten digital spaces. Screen Walks is a collaboration between The Photographers’ Gallery in London and Fotomuseum Winterthur.

Dina Kelberman is a multimedia artist based in Los Angeles, USA. Much of her work comes out of a tendency to meticulously collect and organise imagery from the commonplace surroundings of everyday life. Kelberman has created original web-based pieces for the New Museum and The Marina Abramovic Institute and participated in numerous international biennials. Her work has been written about by The New York Times, Art21, NPR and various art theory books and textbooks. In 2018 she was invited to speak at the UbuWeb conference in Athens and the Post-Photography Prototyping Biennial in London. She is currently ranked 5th in the world for Most Lines in Tetris for the Nintendo Entertainment System.
