Curatorial: 2015′ Secret Agent at the Finnish Museum of Photography, Helsinki

Secret Agent | The Finnish Museum of Photography, Helsinki 4 September 2015 – 16 October Private View: 3 September 2015, 5-7pm Judith Barry Beth Collar Chiara Fumai Mathilde ter Heijne Maud Sulter Niina Vatanen Secret Agent is a group exhibition composed from the viewpoint of feminist authorship and forms of collaboration in contemporary photography and film making practices. The six artists in the exhibition actively challenge the institutional structure of history and patriarchal authority – and imagine alternative narratives through the specificity of lens-based media. Acts of image-making, archiving, and guerilla information tactics enable visibility and challenge relationships between author and authority.

Interview with Sofia Lahti (Curator of the Finnish Museum of Photography) in Chinese

This is an ongoing project about the photography collection and management of museums, galleries, private collections and archives. I collaborate with the Ray Art Centre (Shanghai), publishing interviews and articles online in Chinese. Because most interviews are done in English, this platform will show these works in both Chinese and English. The Ray Art Centre is a non-profit organisation, which has organised great public events with institutions such as Fudan University and Bund Art Museum. Hope you enjoy my work. 影像收藏与策展专题 | 索非亚·拉提:什么是芬兰文化、摄影和艺术?(下) Originally published with the Ray Art Center (Shanghai) 撰文、采访 / 陈芳菲 图片来源:芬兰摄影博物馆 作者前言:笔者今年和赫墨拉小组(Hemera Collective)一直忙于为芬兰摄影博物馆制作展览。索非亚·拉提(SofiaLahti)是配合我们工作的策展人之一。芬兰摄影博物馆(Finnish Museum of Photography, FMP)位于首都赫尔辛基。博物馆创始于1969年,如今以独立基金会的形式在运营,拥有近50年的历史。2013年5月,《在博物馆中的影像》国际学术会议在俄罗斯国家博物馆展览中心(The State Russian Museum and Exhibition Centre ROSPHOTO)开幕。索非亚·拉提作为芬兰摄影博物馆的代表与会并作演讲,随后她的演讲稿作为博物馆和馆藏介绍放在网站上至今。这篇文章极大满足了我对芬兰摄影博物馆的好奇心。在索非亚的支持和帮助下,我把这篇文章翻译过来,并就文章未涉及的方面进行采访。
