In conjunction with our exhibition Soft Layers, Kristina Bengtsson and I will be holding group reading sessions on three occasions during the run of the exhibition. During these sessions we will examine three key points in the historical development of photography and jointly discuss various positions and movements within this. Each session will be led by Bengtsson and I who will make use of the works in the exhibition as references and anchors for the discussion. Each session will take approximately two hours including a break. Throughout the exhibition period the texts will be available to read at Galleri Format and after each session notes from the group readings will be added to the texts. The third and final of these reading groups will take place at Galleri Format on Thursday 22 October at 6 pm.
