1968: Photojournalism Then & Now

  • Goethe-Institut Washington 1990 K Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20006 United States (map)

To open the exhibit 1968: A Time of Uproar in Europe and the US, the Goethe-Institut will be hosting a panel discussion on the theme of photojournalism. Belinda Davis, Professor of History at Rutgers University in New Jersey, will give a historic overview of the development of photojournalism while Jon Elswick, photographer at the Associated Press, will deal with the specific question of the use of photography in documenting the protests of the 1968 movements.

The discussion will be moderated by the award-winning photographer Astrid Riecken, a lecturer of photojournalism at the Corcoran School of the Arts and Design at George Washington University, who has worked for publications such as The Washington Post and The New York Times.
