A Line is There to be Broken originated in 2008, bringing together individual photographic projects that scrutinize struggles between transformations of 'place' and 'space'. Tristan Fennell, David Kendall and Gesche Wuerfel create photographic works that explore social and spatial disruptions in everyday life and the urban landscape. This ongoing curatorial project and group exhibition continues to question changes in social-governmental policies, spatial economic developments, and initiatives in cities throughout the world.
The workshop will run in conjunction with the exhibition at Greenwich and will take place around the periphery of the 2012 Olympic site in East London. In the morning participants will be invited to walk around the Olympic site in Stratford-Hackney Wick and hear more about the 'theoretical implications' of constructing this site. In the afternoon we will return to Viewfinder Photography Gallery to view and discuss photographs made during the workshop and discover spatial and social links with the photographs in the exhibition.
