DESCRIPTION

How does urban photography engage with and shape our understanding of public space? Join photographers, artists, architects and academics for a one-day symposium exploring how the theories and practices of urban space inform and shape our relationship to image-making. Contributors will engage with the idea of the public realm through a range of photographic practices and visual methodologies, the poetics and politics of architectural space, and contested sites of memory and memorialisation.

Confirmed contributors include Victor Burgin as keynote speaker, Paul Halliday, Karen Wells, Bridget Smith, Mark Pimlott, Paul Goodwin, Caroline Knowles, Diego Ferrari, Gil Pasternak, Stephen J Morgan, Melanie Manchot and Alison Rooke.

This event is part of UrbanPhotoFest and is organised in partnership with the Centre for Urban and Community Research (CUCR), Goldsmiths, University of London; Birkbeck College; and Kingston University.

This event is related to the exhibition William Klein + Daido Moriyama and Another London
