Photo – lightPhobia – rejection.“Photophobia” is a manifesto,is an etymological research,is a performance,is an artistic movement.The recordings for Sanni Est’s eponymous album are ready and, before its release next year, the artist invites an online audience to dissect the sociopolitical correlations, personal reflections and musical references to the concept “Photophobia” and the different ways she has explored it in the past few years.The work in progress will culminate in a mixed-media music film which is currently in production phase.This lecture is part of Queer History Month Germany and was developed in partnership with the QHM Network.
