*Postponed* Photography and Cinema, from A to Z

30 March 6:00 pm

Clore Lecture Theatre (CLO B01), Clore Management Centre, Birkbeck, University of London

*POSTPONED DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS SITUATION*

 

The inaugural Kraszna-Krausz Lecture will be given by internationally renowned writer, public speaker and curator David Campany. Titled Photography and Cinema, from A to Z, the lecture will take the form of twenty-six short reflections on still and moving images. The lecture series, newly established by the Kraszna-Krausz Foundation, will provide a platform and space for fresh voices and perspectives on photography and the moving image.

Presented in partnership with the The Kraszna-Krausz Foundation, which was created by Hungarian-Jewish émigré Andor Kraszna-Krausz, the founder of Focal Press, an influential specialist publishing house for books on photography. Since 1985 the annual Kraszna-Krausz Book Awards have been the UK’s leading prizes for books on photography and the moving image. More information on the work of the Foundation can be found here.
