Relating to Landscape
Hans-Christian Schink in conversation with Olga Smith
26 October 2016
The question of relating to landscape, through ethical, emotional and intellectual engagement on behalf of the artist, was the focus of this talk. The main question explored was with reference to the photographic series Verkehrsprojekte Deutsche Einheit (1995-2003) by artist Hans-Christian Schink, presented in the context of the exhibition Longing for Landscape - Photography in the Anthropocene (2016).
Olga Smith writes and lectures on contemporary art and photography. She is currently based at the Humboldt University where she holds a postdoctoral fellowship. Trained as an art historian at the University of Cambridge, she has previously worked at the Tate Gallery London. Her current research projects include representations of landscape in photography from the 1980s to the present.
