KEYNOTE & GUEST SPEAKERS
Archivo Platform and the Archivo Papers Journal, are pleased to announce the 4th edition of Reframing the Archive – International Conference on Photography and Visual Culture.
The conference will address the theme 'Image, Archive and Conflict', aiming to critically investigate the relationship between technical images, the archive and conflict across past and present, long duration and real time, and the impact of digital media on the status and development of technical images as well as its consequences in historical conscience, present and future imaginaries.
Focusing on the production, circulation, and archiving of images, this conference will address two main perspectives: on the one hand, it aims to explore the materialities and immaterialities of archival production within the digital age in regard to contemporary critical appropriations through visual arts that address, assess and contest past and present conflicts, history’s repressed events and violations. On the other hand, it intends to examine the techno-aesthetics of datafication, understanding artistic strategies as potential sites for resisting and counter-acting current extractivist processes, which tend to capture and transform everyday life into data.
