At the Crossing Lines. Politics of Images Rafał Milach presents four objects from ‘The Field of View’ 2018 cycle. These objects are reconstruction of demolished training aids for Ukrainian pilots the artist found in abandoned military unit in Odesa, Ukraine back in 2015
Crossing Lines examines the distribution, circulation, and mechanisms of photographic image on three levels. What images are communicated to a society through news channels or social media? Who guarantees and takes responsibility for the authenticity of images that reach our smartphones in real time today? What visual worlds are generated to make statements? When does the content of an image become propaganda for political statements?
Crossing Lines presents over 150 photographs and video installations by more than twenty international artists. The exhibition is a part of the tenth edition of FOTO WIEN – the largest biennial photography festival in Austria.
