Screen Walk with Dunja Nešović

Dunja Nešović will present her work with screenshots – the networked images that we produce on the flat surfaces of our computational devices. In her Screen Walk, Nešović will explore the specificities of the screenshot and reflect on the technological, aesthetic and cultural parameters, in which it is produced. The first point of her argument: the screenshot is not a photograph.

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.
