Nikola Tesla Technical Museum, Zagreb, Croatia

We are happy to announce that the conference, which originally was planned to take place in Tbilisi (Georgia), will happen in Zagreb (Croatia) at Nikola Tesla Technical Museum in partnership with the Institute of Art History and Art Pavilion.

The other partners for the 4th edition of Fast Forward conference are Tbilisi Photo Festival, University for the Creative Arts (UCA) and London College of Communication (LCC) at University of the Arts London (UAL). This international conference will be aligned with an exhibition at Art Pavilion, curated by Sandra Križić Roban, that explores the histories of the practices of female photographers in the region.

The theme for the 4th conference, to be held in Zagreb, Croatia and co convened by Professor Anna Fox (UCA) and Maria Kapajeva (UCA/EKA), Professor Val Williams (LCC/UAL), Nestan Nijaradze (Tbilisi Photo Festival) and Dr. Sandra Križić Roban (Institute of Art History) is “Women, Photography, Conflict”. The conference will explore the ways that women photographers have worked in countries affected by conflict and will generate new knowledge within this under researched area.
