"We see so many things but we see nothing"

"...my interest is not really in what is the future of photography, my interest is in what is the future of the world..." - Fred Ritchin

Fred Ritchin's presentation at the What's Next expert meeting, held at Foam in Amsterdam 19 March 2011. (part 1)

The artist KjArtan Slettemark got a lot of attention in the 1970s after having traveled around Europe and the US with a fake passport photo, which was a montage of the artist own hair and beard in combination with the face of Richard Nixon. A project which Kjartan himself saw as a way to blur the line between art and life.
