Riga Photography Biennial 2020


The publication of the Riga Photography Biennial 2020 offers deeper insight into the Biennial’s themes. Historian Kirill Kobrin contemplates on how we arrived at the boundless ocean of images not so long after having photogravure as a rarity in the cabinet of curiosities; media theoretician Kristin Klein traces the origins and development of the “post-digital”; art historian Alise Tīfentāle, by analyzing images on social networks, questions whether it is the right time for landscape photography; while historian Guna Ševkina and curator Šelda Puķīte introduce a lesser-known chapter of history of Latvian photography. The generously illustrated publication also provides more information abut the Biennial’s exhibitions, events and artists.
