Screen Walk with Gaia Tedone
Gaia Tedone will host an analytical exploration of the online circulation and curation of networked images. By tracing the circulatory patterns of a specific visual object, an H&M t-shirt printed with the text «This Image is Not Available in Your Country», she will take the audience on a journey into the entanglements of image circulation, (self-)branding and commodification, exposing the invisible boundaries and power structures of the networks.
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.
Gaia Tedone is a curator and researcher with an expansive interest in the technologies and apparatuses of image formation. She completed her PhD at the Centre for the Study of the Networked Image, London South Bank University with a practice-based research entitled Curating The Networked Image: Circulation, Commodification, Computation (2019). Around this topic, she writes, teaches and curates. Currently, she is working on a research project entitled Curating Photography in The Networked Image Economy at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts, where she investigates post-photography curating and algorithmic visual culture.
