KHARKIV SCHOOL of PHOTOGRAPHY. From resistance against Soviet censorship to defence against Russian invasion

  -  

On 15 September at 7 p.m. we will host Roger Grasas at Foto Colectania who will join us to talk about one of the most particular cultural movements and aesthetic thought in Eastern Europe: the Kharkiv School of Photography.

In this conference Roger will take us through the history of one of the most peculiar photographic movements of the 20th century and at the same time it will be a tribute to the defence of a photographic legacy bombarded by authoritarianism and unreason.
