New Media requires new forms of coverage. Berlin Fotofestival – THE BROWSE faces this reality and provides a platform for unconventional (multimedia) projects. We are glad to announce the presentation of the Black.Light Project, which will be included in the festival again as a part of this new platform, “Converge & Converse.”

For ten years Pedro Rosa Mendes (writer) and Wolf Böwig (photographer) traveled the region to document the West African wars. Their work has been recognized and published in newspapers and publications around the world. Under the label “The Charles Taylor Wars”, an international lineup of illustrators and artists now create a crossover version of the reports, merging illustration, photography and written word.

On Friday, June 14, Wolf Böwig will also take part in a panel about new media formats w/ Robert King, Rocco Castoro, and Micha Brunveils. He will talk about Black.Light Project and his new cross media approach. Berlin actor Alexander Radszun and Böwig already present the Black.Light Project in a multimedia performance on Friday, at 7pm.
