“The Stringers” exhibition is speaking on the formation of the contemporary hired scribes of history and witnesses of the signatures of its authors – the freelancers. From Second World War until our day, the hired media workers are at the centre of every conflict and social turmoil. Their look on war, genocides, and revolutions is the one of the unprotected – without a side in the conflict, nation, contract or religion, embassy, or insurance. It is the basis of the humanist tradition in photography, documentary film, print, and electronic news, but also propaganda, politics, and the culture of remembrance. Regardless of their individual positions, the point of view of the media proletariat has been the mirror in which we do not only see the will for destruction and repression of the social conflict but also our own tolerance for the precarity of lives of those producing the news we consume. Diverse as much as the people they can’t do without, the stringers have, for the most part, sought, to find the ways to tell the story and maybe, even survive it, while trying to preserve at least some independence and integrity, regardless of their position of the economic subaltern. The exhibition is tracking multiple positions – from prisoners of war and camp inmates, through minors, the embedded journalists, (in)dependent operators in the media spaces of different periods, up to the coming of age of the authors which, through the position of freelancers, are finding the space to return the gaze even to a repressive society.
