On June 16 at 7pm Rafal Milach, visual artist, activist and photographer, will be at Fabrica for a free lecture open to the public entitled “Photography as a social practice”.
Associate Member of the prestigious Magnum Photos, Milach’s work focuses on the tension between society and power structures. Author of protest books and critical publications on state control, Milach is a professor at the Krzysztof Kieślowski Film School of Silesian University in Katowice, Poland. He has received scholarships from the Polish Minister of Culture and National Heritage, Magnum Foundation and European Cultural Foundation.
He is a winner of the World Press Photo and a finalist of the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize and Polityka Passports Award. Co-founder of the Archive of Public Protests and Sputnik Photos collectives, his work has been widely exhibited and is part of the public institutional collections worldwide.
From the outset, Magnum Photos pioneered an experimental approach in the creation of an entrepreneurial, commercial platform for photojournalism. This evolved in direct dialogue with changing media and technologies and in parallel with artistic and personal use of the medium of photography. Today, the agency is uniquely positioned to redefine the concept of documentary through a wide range of personal, artistic and agency led commissions and production experiments.
