"I don’t create entertainment for the mass public. Seeing to the well-being and comfort of viewers isn’t my intention. I don’t care if someone gets a headache after watching this film. The world isn’t a safe place…,” Artur Zmijewski

Part of Stills’ Social Documents series 'The Ethics of Encounter' continues to explore particular facets of the marked rise in the documentation of social processes in contemporary lens-based art together with the associated turn towards documentary tropes. The exhibition will be accompanied by an additional film screening programme, a short course on the philosophy of ethics and artist talks. Monthly reading groups will examine texts related to the theme by the philosopher Jacques Rancier, the critic Claire Bishop and the artist Artur Zmijewski.
