Screen Walks

An online collaboration between The Photographers’ Gallery and Fotomuseum Winterthur, Switzerland.

Screen Walks is a series of live-streamed artist/researcher-led explorations of online spaces and artistic strategies designed to illuminate a thriving – often overlooked – digital cultural scene.

This collaborative project is a way of bringing together and offering insight into some of the rich and varied art practices using the screen as a medium. From re-contextualising imagery found on online marketplaces, uncovering data brokers’ invisible circulation of images, to analysing in-game photography and the social, political and economic implications of games, Screen Walks takes visitors on a rare journey behind-the-scenes and screens of a range of artist projects and uncovers new, current and forgotten digital spaces.

Screen Walks posts a fortnightly wednesday ‘walk’. Each of these invites an artist to stream performative explorations of specific online and digital spaces in which their own core artistic research and practice takes place. The video streams take a format that blurs the boundaries between a guided tour and a workshop, offering a subjective navigation of select digital spaces while providing an up close and personal look at the artist’s practice.

Screen Walks is kindly supported by: Pro Helvetia, Swiss Arts Council.
