Coinciding with new work by the South African artist, this event sees Mikhael in conversation with writer and editor Charlotte Jansen, as the two discuss practice, photography, and the nature of the gaze. A short presentation of his latest film, Epilogue: Disordered and Flatulent (2022), will open the event.
