Negative – Positive – New Print!

12. 6. 2018
Institute of Art History of the CAS, Husova 4, Prague 1
House of Photography, Prague City Gallery, Revoluční 5, Prague 1

In the photographers’ estates stored in archives and museum collections, a large number of negatives are often preserved in addition to original positives. How to exhibit or publish photographic images that have survived in negatives only? How to proceed with “new prints” – the contemporary prints from original negatives? The workshop will focus on the different aspects of this issue, both in the practical and in the theoretical fields.
