What can an image do? How does the image represent? How does the image convey a historical narrative or event?
This workshop will focus on viewing and discussing various contemporary artists’ moving image works that reflect on contemporary political thought.
We will investigate the complexity of media and consider the production and employment of images to reveal both its power and its highly malleable nature. Formal experimentation and innovation will be central to the works, including the consideration of performance and retelling of histories, the personal perspective, witnessing, the forensic, colonialism, post-ethnography, and issues around representation.
This two-day workshop led by curator Aily Nash is a collaboration between LUX and the Institute of Contemporary Arts. It will take place at the ICA on Saturday 2 February and at LUX on Sunday 3 February (LUX is situated at Waterlow Park Centre, Dartmouth Park Hill, London N19 5JF)
The workshop ticket includes free entry to the public screening Provisional Presents and Speculative Futures at the ICA on Saturday 2 February, 7pm.
Lunch will be provided on both days.
