LABOCINE January 2021 Issue


It is no coincidence that the inventors of photography were well-versed in scientific research and chemistry was substantial for the improvement of photographic techniques. Until the digital age at the turn of the 21st century, film-based photochemical methods remained indispensable for photographic practices – same goes for cinema. Exploring the notion of photogenic, the January 2021 issue looks at the complex relationship between science, photography and the medium of film onscreen.

The programme also includes works by artists including Paul Bush, Ian Breakwell & Mike Leggett, Oisin Byrne, Bonnie Camplin, Olga Chernysheva, VALIE EXPORT, Siegfried A. Fruhauf, David Hall, Tamara Henderson, Mika Rottenberg and Frank Wasser

Available online at www.aemi.ie and from December 10th 2020 to January 10th 2021.
