7 February @ 6.00 pm - 9.00 pm
How do you respond to the world around you? The Jewish Museum London invites you to join photographers, artists, musicians and creatives to discover the ways in which humans try to understand their cultural moment through the medium of photography.
Come and experience an exciting programme of events and activities including a pop-up dark room, an immersive audio-visual installation, music, crafts, and the opportunity to explore the temporary exhibition, Roman Vishniac Rediscovered, with the curator.
Programmed by students from UCL’s MA in Museum Studies.
- Try your hand at a photogram and develop your own photos in the pop-up dark room
- Enjoy ‘Magnify’, An immersive audio-visual installation. Three electronic music artists – Barney Ross-Smith, Felix Taylor and Jonathan Higgins – have been invited to respond to Roman Vishniac’s photomicroscopy. Grab yourself a bean bag and relax, taking a moment to appreciate the strangeness and the beauty that can be found in our world…
- Go ‘beyond the camera’ and make a gingerbread biscuit with artist, Orly Orbach, based on a memory or photo from your own life.
- Listen and engage in reflective talks from social photographers Giovanna del Sarto, Kevin O’Mahoney, Paul D’Souza and Barry Falk.
- Have your photo taken in our pop-up portrait studio and watch as the installation develops throughout the evening.
- Explore Roman Vishniac Rediscovered with its curator, Morgan Wadsworth-Boyle, and travel through his works from the early 1920s to the late 1970s.
- Explore the Kindertransport exhibition with its curator, Kathrin Pieren, to understand the story of rescue as well as those of rupture, loss and regret.
