Why Does Lviv Not Have a Museum of Photography?
Center for Urban History / online
The round-table would engage museum experts, educators, artists, and activists to try and search for answers to the questions about the actual state of play in photo education in Lviv. Why photography or photography studies are not part of the curriculum in Lviv’s universities? How do schools present urban photo heritage in their courses? How does photo education impact our perception and assessment for a photo? Why the photo heritage is such a rare exhibit in museums, despite being available in the collections? What is the place of photography in museum collections? What is the role of art and scientific photography in composing the museum collection?
Moderator – Bohdan Shumylovych, public history projects coordinator, member of a curator team of the "processing" exhibition.
The round table is contributing to the program of the Digital Workshop "Public and Private Collections in the Time of Total Digitalization" and is part of the accompanying program to the exhibition-as-research of the Vil' Furgalo collection, the "processing", intending to actualize a broader discussion about Lviv photography.
