PHOTOGRAPHY AND LABOUR ON THE MARGINS
3rd Changing Faces Conference

Changing Faces is a three-year EU Culture 2000 funded photography commission
project focused on the theme of WORK and run through the International
Photography Research Network (IPRN, WWW.THEIPRN.ORG).

Project Changing Faces is co-ordinated and delivered by the University of
Sunderland UK, with the IPRN founding partners: Museum Folkwang in Essen,
Germany; University of Leiden/Paradox ,The Netherlands; University of
Jyvaskyla, Finland; Dom fotografie, Liptovky Mikulas, Slovakia and Arts
Council in England, UK.

3rd Changing Faces conference is organized by Dom fotografie in Liptovsky
Mikulas, Slovakia in cooperation with University of Sunderland, UK and
Slovak Academy of Sciences´ Institute of Art History in Bratislava,
Slovakia.

3rd Changing Faces conferences will take place in Liptovsky Mikulas
(Slovakia), hosted by the House of Photography (WWW.DOMFOTO.SK), from
October 4th till 7th 2007.
The main areas of focus for the conference are photography in relation to
Margins - both geographically and conceptually and Work, the main theme
addressed by the 'Changing Faces' project ( WWW.THEIPRN.ORG).

Participants are invited to look into the ways photography has reflected the
political
and social "changing faces" of labour from the 1970s to the present day in
what has, at least until very recently, been seen as the "margins" of the
developed world and/or the mainstream.
We welcome papers from photographers, photography scholars, visual
theorists, sociologists, historians, curators and archivists that address
the following issues :
How has the changing nature of labour been represented in different social
contexts in the centre and at the margins?
What are the different ideologies of labour?
How have diverse iconic images of labour affected national representations
of work?
What is the face of labour in the humanist tradition and how has this
changed in the post-humanist condition?
