FOTOGRĀFI MĀKSLAS TIRGŪ
Kataržinas Sagatovskas lekcija

Rietumu pasaulē par fotomākslas tirgus pirmsākumiem pierasts uzskatīt leģendāro Sidnija Strobera kolekcijas izsoli 1970. gadā, Ņujorkas izsoļu namā Parke-Bernet. Turpretim Polijā, tāpat kā daudzās citās Austrumu bloka valstīs, fotomākslas tirgus sāka attīstīties tikai šī gadsimta sākumā. Iesākumā, kā jau pēc daudziem komunistiskā režīma gadiem, progress bija gauss. Ne mākslinieki, ne kolekcionāri nebija gatavi tirgus noteikumiem. Tāpat kā jebkuram citam mākslas medijam, fotogrāfijai ir savas specifiskas prasības, kas jāizpilda, gatavojot darbus pārdošanai, tajā skaitā ‒ noteiktu vispārpieņemtu tehnisko normu ievērošana un sekošana standarta praksei darbu parakstīšanas un kopiju skaita jautājumos.

Kataržina Sagatovska kopš 2010. gada darbojas gan poļu, gan starptautiskajā fotogrāfijas tirgū, sadarbojoties ar visdažādāko paaudžu māksliniekiem un daudziem mākslas kolekcionāriem. Viņas lekcija domāta katram, kuru interesē mākslas foto tirgus profesionālās stratēģijas. Sagatovska runās par to, kā prezentēt savus darbus, kā veidot komunikāciju ar skatītājiem, kolekcionāriem un ekspertiem un kā tehniski sagatavot darbus, lai apmierinātu kolekcionāru prasības, tai skaitā tās, kuras attiecas uz izdruku veidiem, reproducēšanas tehniku, kopiju skaitu un datēšanas un parakstīšanas praksi, kā arī citiem jautājumiem. Viņa pieskarsies arī mākslinieku tiesību un privilēģiju tēmai visdažādākā veida sadarbību kontekstā ‒ piemēram, strādājot ar institūcijām vai izdevējiem.

Kataržina Sagatovska (1973) ir poļu kuratore, fotogrāfe, lektore un mākslas pasākumu organizētāja, kā arī fotogrāfijas kolekcionēšanas popularizētāja Polijā. Viņa ir absolvējusi Silēzijas Universitātes Radošās fotogrāfijas institūtu Opavā, Čehijā (kur viņa patlaban studē doktorantūrā) un Varšavas Tehnisko universitāti. Kuratore, izstāžu un pazīstamu poļu mākslinieku fotogrāfiju izsoļu koordinatore projektā "Fotogrāfija kolekcionāriem"(2010–2017). Līdzautore pasākumu sērijai "Mēs visi esam fotogrāfi", piedalījusies vairāku fotogrāfijas konkursu (BZ WBK Press FotoShowOFF Krakovas Fotomēnesī un Photographic Publication of the Year) žūrijas darbā. JEDNOSTKA galerijas un izdevniecības dibinātāja un īpašniece.

PHOTOGRAPHERS ON THE ART MARKET
Lecture by Katarzyna Sagatowska

In the Western world, the beginning of the photography art market is often said to have been the legendary 1970 auction of the Sidney Strober Collection at the Parke-Bernetauction house in New York. Meanwhile, in Poland, as in many other Eastern Bloc countries, the photography art market only started to develop in the early 2000s. In the beginning, after years of communism, progress was slow. Neither artists nor collectors were prepared for the market’s rules. Photography, like other mediums, has its own specific requirements when it comes to preparing works for sale, including adherence to certain technical conventions and the maintenance of standard practices around signing and editions.

Katarzyna Sagatowska has been working within both the Polish and international photography markets since 2010 and has dealt with artists of all generations as well as many different collectors. Her lecture is meant for anyone interested in professional strategies within the art photography market. Sagatowska will talk about how to present your art; how to communicate with viewers, collectors and experts; and how to attain the levels of technical refinement in your work necessary to satisfy collectors’ standards, including those related to types of prints, reproduction techniques, edition sizes, and practices of dating and signing, etc. She will also touch on the topic of artists’ rights and privileges in the context of different types of collaborations—for example, when working with institutions or publishers.

Katarzyna Sagatowska (1973) is a Polish curator, photographer, lecturer and organiser of art events as well as a promoter of photography collecting in Poland. She graduated from the Institute of Creative Photography at the Silesian University in Opava, Czech Republic (where she is currently studying for a PhD), and Warsaw Technical University. She was the curator and coordinator of the project Collector’s Photography (2010–2017), which consisted of exhibitions and auctions of famous Polish artists’ photographs. She is one of the co-creators of the series of events We Are All Photographers and has worked on the juries of several photography competitions, including BZ WBK Press Foto, Krakow Photomonth's ShowOFF and Photographic Publication of the Year). Founder and owner of JEDNOSTKA gallery and publishing house.

George Georgiou on ISSP (29 August 2010):

The organization, energy and enthusiasm of ISSP founders is contagious and sets the scene for the whole event. The remoteness of the location brings an intensity that is bonding for all who take part. The inspiration, friendships and energy will live with many for a long time. A week of great creativity and soul searching for all involved.

Andrei Polikanov on ISSP (26 August 2010):

The terrific and dangerously fruitful mixture of talent and youth, creativity and professionalism,responsibility and integrity, curiosity and persistence, joy and freedom- makes the ISSP summer school truly unforgettable. I miss it a lot!

Ville Lenkkeri on ISSP

Ville Lenkkeri on ISSP (24 August 2010):

Enthusiasm, energy and creative craziness seldom materialize in such progressive and altruistic form as in case of ISSP. It is the way of working of the organizers as well as the surroundings that they have chosen that set the atmosphere of the summer school. And the atmosphere is one of joyful creation; brotherhood of attempt, sisterhood of success.
