Screen Walk with Maria Guta
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.
Maria Guta (1983, Bucharest) is a Romanian artist based in Switzerland. Her work mainly looks into mechanisms of self-representation which she re-enacts by placing herself both behind and in front of the camera. Perpetually constructing and curating alternate cyber-identities, she makes use of immersive digital tools and social media in her work. She holds a BFA in Graphic Design from The National University of Arts in Bucharest and an MA in Art Direction from École cantonale d'art de Lausanne (ECAL).
