Talent Talks 2022 with Kata Geibl & Shailoh Phillips Foam Talks

    • Kunst

Foam produces this special series of podcasts on the occasion of Foam Talent 2022. Each episode focusses on one artist aiming to evoke a conversation around their approach and contextualizing it within the photography field while not forgetting the personal stories behind it. Each conversation features a special guest that offers an insight into the discourses surrounding a specific project. The series is hosted by Mirelva Berghout, curator of this year's Foam Talent exhibition.



Shailoh Phillips (1979, USA) is an artist, activist, researcher, educator, hacker, and community organizer. She approaches theory as an embodied practice and teaching as a form of art. She is part of the artist group Tools for Action and currently working on a practice-based PhD on the intersections between protest, performance and photography. Originally trained in philosophy and cultural anthropology, she abandoned an academic career to work in the cultural sector, mainly for museums, public television, artist-run spaces and online platforms.


Kata Geibl (1989, Budapest) is a photographer living and working in Budapest, Hungary. Her work is mainly focused on global issues, capitalism, the Anthropocene, and the ambiguities of the photographic medium. Coming from a background in Liberal Arts has informed the way she creates her projects. Drawing concepts from Philosophy and Cultural Studies, Geibl steps in with metaphorical images to fill in the gaps where words fall short. Geibl’s long-standing interest in photography’s ambiguity — how we are trained to treat photographs as evidence while also approaching them with intense suspicion – is palpable throughout her practice. Harnessing this tension, she presents us with the implications of a very real phenomenon without adhering to straight documentary methods that habitually signal truth. Instead, she mixes genres to produce her visual universe — a commentary on our relationship to photography as much as the implications of capitalism.
