Watch Dunja Nešović in a live-streamed exploration of the screenshot.

This event is part of our Past Programme

Dunja Nešović took us on an exploration of the screenshot – the networked image that generates, appears and blends with the flat display surfaces of our computational devices. Walking through the screenshot in this account serves to unravel the specificities of the screenshot that are produced by the technological, aesthetic and cultural constituents of the screened environments we are surrounded with. The first point of this argument: the screenshot is not a photograph.

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. A new online collaboration between The Photographers’ Gallery, UK and Fotomuseum Winterthur, Switzerland.
