TALK on Thea Segall

Witte de With, in collaboration with Jan van Eyck Academie, is launching an experimental publication of unedited and unpublished material of the Romanian photographer based in Venezuela, Thea Segall (Burdujeni, Romania, 1929 - Caracas, Venezuela, 2009).

In relation to An exhibition with art installations by Susana Mejía, Pamela Rosenkranz, and Anicka Yi, the publication looks into Segall’s trips to the Amazon in the 60’s, where she used the camera as a tool for an ethnographic research to understand sociocultural practices and the lifestyles of indigenous communities.

During the event, Aixa Sánchez and Sagrario Berti, will talk about Segall’s legacy and the process of collaboration for this publication, Huib Haye van der Werf (Curator Artistic Program at Jan van Eyck) and Andrea Canepa (Participant of InLab at Jan Van Eyck) will talk about InLabs and the process of printing and designing the publication.
