With four weeks to go before GDFB2012 starts we are happy to announce that the program has been finalized. With a mix of exhibitions, lectures, workshops, urban interventions and parties it’s about time to get excited about the 5 coming festival days.
We’re all part of a visual culture, a society that increasingly communicates via images.
Theexhibition shows how image-makers create and share visual stories from various perspectives. Nowadays an image-maker can act as a poet, journalist, scientist and agitator. Their compact visual stories provide us a wide perspective of the world we live in.
