    Workshop by Maija Tammi 16.11.–4.12.2020.

    Disturbing photographs is a workshop that examines terms abject, uncanny and (aesthetic) disgust in relation to making photographic art. The workshop examines how photographs can turn mundane into eerie or disgusting and how disgust and fascination intertwine in artworks. The aim of the workshop is to learn the concepts of disgust, uncanny and abject, and apply them as an inspiration or as a method in the making of photographic artworks.
