Esther Teichmann (Royal College of Art, London) is a visual artist/writer who works with photography across still and moving image installations.

Gade will present under the title I’m looking at you (but it’s only a picture so I take that back…)
Apart from the keynote speaks we will have twelve interesting talks and performances from various artists, writers and students from around the world.
The symposium will be held at the University of Copenhagen, South Campus. It is in building 4A on the ground floor, room 69 from 9 to 5:30 pm each day.
