In the media world, strong, “loud” pictures are often more popular—they impress with immediacy and a clear message. As an antithesis to these works, many contemporary artists are creating “quiet” pictures, produced with long exposure times, that achieve their impact by restricting their means or through the power of their visual ambiguity and mysteriousness. But how can such works express silent dissent, silencing our habitual knowledge in order to enhance it with new reflections? How do they succeed in raising questions about their significance and about the mechanisms of viewing? Sabine Gamper (critic and curator) and Walter Niedermayr (artist and photographer) will talk about these topics with Gigliola Foschi, author of the book “Fotografie del silenzio. Forme inquiete del vedere” [Photographs of Silence. Disquieting Forms of Seeing], Mimesis/Accademia del silenzio, Milan, 2015
