The sound recording of the seminar Politics of the (non-)image. Photography and Political Violence (Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and Museo Reina Sofia, 10-11 December 2015) are now available in our multimedia section.
This seminar aimed to articulate a collective reflection about the relationship between photography and political violence. In fact, it is a topical and thorny problem, which has a long tradition in the history of art – especially if we think it as an extension of the analyses of the representation of violence and their consequences: pain, suffering, death – and around which intense debates have been carried out in recent decades.
