Darkside II: power and violence, disease and death photographed

Dobai, Sarah (2009) Darkside II: power and violence, disease and death photographed. [Show/Exhibition]

Type of Research: Show/Exhibition
Creators: Dobai, Sarah

Group show.

Following on from "Darkside I - Photographic Desire and Sexuality Photographed" (Winterthur 2008) which explored the role of photography in the imaging of sexuality and desire, Darkside II investigated the affinity between photography, violence and death. Understanding that the visual world of western culture is full of images of violence this exhibition raised questions of exploitation, complicity and the reproduction of power structures on both sides of the camera and in the photograph.
