UNCERTAINTY

Online festival

From 3 to 6 December 2020, FOMU is hosting an online festival on Uncertainty live from the museum.

During the festival, thinkers and doers will investigate the impact that uncertainty has on photography, the future and social justice. We will discuss inspiring ideas and innovative perspectives over the course of remote talks and workshops.

The COVID-19 pandemic is exacerbating social inequities and holding up a mirror to our society. How can we connect with each other in uncertain times? Can uncertainty actually provide room for change?

PROGRAMME

EVERY EVENENING AT 8 P.M: FACEBOOK LIVE TALK

FOMU will hold daily discussions with thinkers and doers on topics such as the relationship between uncertainty and social media, empathy, black futurism and intergenerational narratives. Participants will include Sarah Dimani, Philippine Hoegen, Sabrine Ingabire, Koen Wynants, Alisha B Wormsley, Yasmina Reggad and Ama Koranteng-Kumi

Launch Trigger #2

We are launching the magazine Trigger #2 during the festival. The theme is Uncertainty. TRIGGER is FOMU’s publication platform for photography. TRIGGER is published entirely in English, both as an online platform and as an annual print version in partnership with Fw: Books (Amsterdam). The second edition of the magazine is a collaboration with The School of Speculative Documentary. We investigate, among other topics, the imagined futures that result from using speculation as a tool.
