WOMEN’S PERSPECTIVES — conference on contemporary photography

Date: Friday 14th September 2018
Time: 3 — 7.30 PM
Location: Cinema Europa
Open to the public

PHOTOGRAPHY, ETHICS AND THE OTHER: 16:30 – 17:45h
speakers: Nina Berman, Ulla Deventer, Laia Abril and Sandra Vitaljić

The panel will focus on the role of photography in articulating women’s experiences, in connecting the personal with the historical and the cultural. We want to see how photography is being used and how it can be used to foreground oppression, discrimination, stereotypization and dehumanization. Also, we want to explore the difficulty of representing the lived experiences of marginalized subjects, regardless of the imagery being fictional or documentary. We want to raise questions about the responsibility, consent and anonymity involved in the artistic production and dissemination. Our aim is to show and discuss artistic practices that present new understandings of ethics, rights, otherness, power, and agency in relation to photography.
