Gasket are a photographic collective who curate and exhibit visual practitioners critically engaged with urban representation. Gasket grew from a shared experience of the Photography and Urban Cultures programme at Goldsmiths College and we seek to continue the tradition of critical visual practice learned here in our own work. Beginning in late-2012 with an exhibition celebrating 10 years of the PUC programme, Gasket have since exhibited in London and Vienna and will participate in the Milan photo fair later this year. Gasket are grateful for the opportunity to assist in these celebrations and hope to continue the success of other PUC alumni.
Masters in Photography and Urban Cultures
This exhibition is created by students of the Masters of Photography and Urban Cultures program (PUC) to commemorate the fiftieth year of the Department of Sociology. These works respond to issues brought up during the Talking Practice workshop and the feedback received from tutors and peers. The artists adopt multidisciplinary attitudes in their works and draw influences from art practice, philosophy, journalism, sociology, geography and architecture. They bring a diverse point of view and critical eye, through their discovery of everyday life within the urban realm. Through the connection of theory, practice and discussion PUC students have engaged in core themes of urban cultures. This exhibition is a visual manifestation of collective dialogue.
Masters in Visual Sociology
The MA Visual Sociology began in September 2013. It aims to introduce and build on a range of debates within visual and sensory sociology, encouraging an engagement with sociology as an inventive research practice. The 50th anniversary exhibition documents some of the workshops that students have been involved in this year – including on using food to research social class, an introduction to 16mm film (run by No.W.Here) and a course on the internet of things and lo-fidelty prototyping with arduino platforms (funded by Intel). It also showcases work in progress by current students around the theme of social mobility. A separate end of course exhibition on the theme of austerity and the body is open to the public from 5.30-7.00, 28th March, 288 New Cross Road.
