From 1854 Media and British Journal of Photography, 1854 Presents brings the insights and expertise of world-class photography figures off the page and into your living room: from your own home, access exclusive artist talks, Q&As, panel discussions and more to keep you inspired and motivated during the COVID-19 lockdown — all completely free.

On the 21st May, 1854 Presented: Jason Koxvold.

Jason Koxvold is a British artist and director working across photography, interactive media and film. Having been exhibited and published extensively around the world, his practice focuses on the shared spaces between neoliberal economic policy and military strategy. He has made work in diverse locations from Afghanistan to Nigeria, Arctic Russia to South Africa. 

Jason is the founder of Gnomic Book, an imprint focused on challenging subjects by emerging artists, and Virtual— Assembly, an online book fair to support publishers and artists in our present moment of social distancing. 

In this free and exclusive live stream event, Jason unpacked representations of power – both economic and military – throughout his oeuvre: from where he began with Everything, and Nothing (unpublished) to his subsequent monographs Knives, You Were Right All Along, and Calle Tredici Martiri, as well as Theatre of War (work in progress).
