Brighton Photo Biennial 2018

A New Europe – Opening Conversations

University of Brighton Sallis Benney Theatre / Brighton / England

Marking the Biennial’s opening weekend, an afternoon of talks by Brighton Photo Biennial artists and panel discussions on the themes reflected in A New Europe.

Brighton Photo Biennial runs 28 September – 28 October 2018 with exhibitions and events across the city. For its eighth edition, A New Europe, the photography festival draws on one of the most important geopolitical events of our time and examines the current state of flux as the United Kingdom redefines its role in Europe.


Opening Conversation Speakers include:

Shoair Mavlian, Photoworks Director, Brighton Photo Biennial artists: Aikaterini Gegisian,Émeric LhuissetHrair SarkissianDonovan Wylie and more.

The UK’s status within the EU may be changing, but geographically we will remain part of Europe – with a shared history and intertwined future. Much of the photography in Brighton Photo Biennial 2018 responds to this current uncertainty and explores Britain’s geography as an island, the ongoing refugee crisis and photography’s role in the construction of national identity.
