ARCHIVE & CONFLICT

PHOTOGRAPHIC (IM)MATERIALITIES IN THE DIGITAL AGE

Focusing on the production, circulation, and archiving of images, the Archivo Webinar Series 2024 aims to explore the Archive & Conflict through two main perspectives: on the one hand, to delve into the materialities and immaterialities of archival production within the digital age in regard to contemporary critical appropriations through visual arts that address, access and contest past and present conflicts, history’s repressed events and violations. On the other hand, to examine the 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.
