ELAC Symposium


How should the nature and status of digital photographic production be determined? How should contemporary photographic practices and related discourses be demarcated? How should one choose a career in photography between commercial commissions and artistic projects? What media are used to disseminate and display photographic works? Are we beginning to develop an “augmented vision” of reality?

A panel of around ten specialists (photographers, critics and curators) will be invited to contribute on these themes through discussions, essays, interviews and/lectures. The aim here is to offer a creative research format based on the students’ own visual works rather than predetermined frameworks for analysis. Ultimately, the aim of this research is to create a robust theoretical framework to be used in a postgraduate teaching programme.
