Critical Issues in Photography Today (London, 18-19 May 17)

London, University of Westminster, May 18–19, 2017

David Bate, London

photographies journal was first published in 2007 to initiate theoretical and critical discussion of photography in local and global contexts.
To celebrate our 10th anniversary, photographies journal is holding a two-day conference. Bringing together a range of international speakers, it promises to be a defining event, engaging and interrogating the contemporary condition and currency of the photographic image.
The talks and presentations will be organized around five key themes and explore a wealth of different issues and subjects within each of them:
- Critical Issues
- Theory and Resistances
- Territory, Community and the State
- Borders and Boundaries
- Education
