Photography and Power: the Seeds of a Globalized Modern World

Associate Professor Karolina Karlic
Monday, November 14, 2022
6:30-8:00 p.m

Through a range of photographic media Karolina Karlic creates work that addresses the intersection of photography and documentary practices, with a focus on systems of labor and industry, globalization, and their impact on the social and environmental landscapes.

Karlic has been the recipient of numerous fellowships, residencies, and awards, including the John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship (2011). Karlic's research is dedicated to telling the stories of those persons and ecologies who have been affected by the post-modernization of the industrial world. Her research is aimed at creating a new way to reflect on the possibilities for the visual arts today to deliver an act of criticism and to imagine a future. Karlic invites the viewer into a space and environment where historical consciousness is critical to reflecting on our relationship to consumption by questioning photography’s limitations, engaging contemporary concerns around the social impact of art, and elaborating on the distinctions between art and lived experience.
