›Death of Street Photography or Death of the Right on One’s Own Photo?’ Panel Discussion

Panel held in German.

What about photographing strangers in public? Are there any rights to protect individuals from being photographed without their permission?  Are the laws applied to the ›Street photography‹ different from the ones applied to snapshots of private individuals? The topic of this event will be the question, how the conflicting interests of undisturbed art practice and the protection of privacy in a digital society can be effectively taken into account. Here the well-known representatives from jurisprudence, advocacy and art will express their opinions.

 

An event within the framework of the XI. Heidelberger Kunstrechtstage of the Institute for Art and Law (ifkur) in cooperation with the German Society for Photography (DGPh).

 

Admission free

Photo Workshop: Develop Negatives in the Mobile Darkroom
Developing negatives Analogue Practice

 

 

Due to the rise of digital photography the analogue process of developing negatives in the darkroom seems to have become a romantic practice, almost exclusively reserved for experts of analogue techniques. During six days this experience will become accessible for everyone as the mobile darkroom makes stops in public places in Mannheim, Heidelberg and Ludwigshafen.
Every day there is a portrait session, during which one can have one’s photo made with a large format camera. The negatives are then developed in the darkroom, the prints can be taken home as a souvenir.

 

No costs and no registration (open to all passers-by and interested people)

 

Location: in front of the Anatomiegarten, Hauptstraße 49
From 12 to 4 pm
