SEMINAR AND WORKSHOP | Cecilia Järdemar: “Re-framing the Photographic Colonial Encounters” | Rato | FREE
May 9, 2019 @ 10:00 - 16:30Free
Colonization is a touchy subject. Both for the colonizers and the colonized.
On May 9th, Swedish artist of Portuguese descent Cecilia Järdemar invites you to ask some tough questions with Re-enquadrando os encontros coloniais fotográficos (“Re-framing the photographic colonial encounters”), a seminar “exploring issues around reopening colonial photographic archives today.”
According to the organizers, some of these tough questions include:
“How can we, as artists and researchers, enter into the archive and deal with the aftermath of
the colonial past in the present? How can we carry the photographic archive, and all the possible narratives contained within it, into the future? Ariella Azoulay argues that imperial
archives must be approached with a sense of high alert – the seminar and workshop will explore what that can mean in practice.”
The seminar starts at 10h, is followed by a break for a lunch at 12h30, and then a workshop on “the ethics of working in colonial archives,” from 14h to 16h30.
