On October 24th, 5.30 pm Philipp Meuser will give a presentation about his Kaunas Photography Gallery residency project.
During his photographic research his interest lies in various collections of the private and regional museums scattered over Lithuania. He examines the urge to collect stones, hunting trophies, hammers or discarded Soviet-era statues and the immanent quest for meaning, recognition and seperate/collective identity.
