Heatha Akosua announces the opening of the latest MA photography exhibition by our very own Goldsmiths students
Habitus is a photography exhibition showcasing the work of a number of MA Photography and Urban Cultures students from Goldsmiths, and is also part of the Urban Photo Fest 2014. The approach and focus of the research varies from in depth exploration of familial histories, to the impact of major regeneration projects. It includes subculture studies to techno-waste in Ghana, visual contrast in the city to the fringes of tactile perception and memory. Yet as urban sociologists, the group is brought together by an undying interest in the narratives that underlie the city and our existence in it. The artists adopt multidisciplinary attitudes in their works and draw influences from art practice, philosophy, journalism, sociology, geography and architecture. They bring a diverse point of view and critical eye, through their discovery of everyday life within the urban realm. Through the connection of theory, practice and discussion the participants have engaged in core themes of urban cultures.
