IMAGE SYMPOSIUM – BLACK OR WHITE SCREEN: THE POWER OF SEEING IMAGES TOGETHER
27 – 30 June 2016
Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo, Madrid
Attendance is free
This symposium will examine the assemblage of images and space for the commonality opened between them. Likewise, it will address issues related with this outside of film, and of photography, in order to examine the power that lies in seeing, studying and thinking images together. A series of questions arises in relation with this moment that begins after cinema, after images, yet owing to it, to them, namely: How should we see, study, think together? What methodologies should be used? What collectivity is possible in this joint making? What type of antagonism is created from this shared temporality?
Directed by Leire Vergara
Participants: Agency, Cine club CSOA La Morada, Kodwo Eshun, Jon Mikel Euba, Sven Lütticken, Silvia Maglioni & Graeme Thomson, Doreen Mende, and Inés Plasencia, among others to be announced.
