Miniclick presents ‘Another Way of Looking’
2nd October – 2nd November 2014
The Miniclick Business Concern, Brighton
Miniclick is a series of free, monthly photography talks, discussions and experimental events designed to investigate different ways to look at photography. All their events are free and accessible to all and focus on ideas and stories, rather than cameras and kit.
Now running into their fifth year, Miniclick have curated a season of free talks, participatory events, discussions, exhibitions and workshops centered on the theme of ‘Another Way of Looking’ coinciding with Brighton Photo Biennial and Brighton Photo Fringe in October 2014.
Kicking off with ‘The Exploding Miniclick Inevitable’, a free psychedelic launch party with DJs and live visuals, the programme is set to be an engaging and fun approach to contemporary photographic exploration. (Thursday 2nd October, 6-8pm at The Miniclick Business Concern then 8pm ’till late downstairs at Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar, Middle Street, Brighton. Free Entry)
The talks programme features a different photographer every Monday evening, including Tom Pullen and his tactile portraits of the blind and partially sighted, Jason Evans and his Anarcho Cyclist Disko performance / interactive talk, Rob Hornstra discussing his method of slow journalism, and a Pecha Kucha evening with a host of photographers presenting short talks on their non-photographic influences.
Alongside these activities two exhibitions will run through the month, starting with Tom Pullen’s ‘Because I Cannot See’, which feature prints, braille work, audio clips and 3D tactile portraits. Following this is Louis Porter’s ‘The Anatomy of Business’, an exhibition exploring the visual language of business via an appropriated archive of 1980’s financial newspapers.
There is also to get involved with one of their submissions based participatory projects. The ‘Everyone’s a Curator’ project returns on 11 October; an evolving, experimental exhibition made up of submissions from all over the world, curated in one day by the masses visiting The Miniclick Business Concern.
‘The Heart Grows Fonder’ is a text and image based submission. Entries are added to the online gallery (theheartgrowsfonder.com) and on 25 October visitors to The Miniclick Business Concern will be given the chance to curate and bind their own book from the printed submissions.
