CONT·ACT! Fotografie und Handlungsmacht | Photography and Agency

// english version below //

Das Symposium Cont·Act! wird im Rahmen des Stipendienprogramms „Museumskuratoren für Fotografie“ der Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach-Stiftung ausgerichtet. Es findet vom 16.-17. Oktober 2020 am Museum Folkwang in Essen statt und wird von Daria Bona, Sophie-Charlotte Opitz und Katharina Täschner, den drei Stipendiatinnen des aktuellen Turnus 2019-2021, organisiert und durchgeführt. Sollte die Entwicklung der Pandemie ein Treffen vor Ort nicht zulassen, wird ein Onlineformat angestrebt.

Fotografien resultieren aus Entscheidungen, sie sind durch Aktionen und Reaktionen bedingt und stellen dabei die Schnittstelle einer Vielzahl von Kontakten dar: Technisch prägen Momente des Kontakts die Produkte diverser analoger Verfahren, während der Kontakt als Topos lange Zeit bemüht wurde, um das vermeintliche Authentizitätsversprechen der Fotografie theoretisch zu fassen.

“Juden unter sich”

“Juden unter sich”

One of the most influential anti-Semitic propaganda actions produced in the Third Reich in the years 1939-1941 was based on images and reports from various ghettos in occupied Poland. Large portion of the raw material required for the anti-Semitic propaganda was collected and delivered by the Propagandakompanien (PK) of the Wehrmacht.[1] In order to analyze and understand the significance of this contribution, it is necessary to look not only at the propaganda materials, but also at the historical contexts in which they were produced. This includes organizational aspects, local conditions, general propaganda strategies and the given general and local war situation.

This article will examine the contribution of the Wehrmacht to the anti-Semitic propaganda of the “Third Reich” during three periods: The invasion of Poland, the establishment of a new order in the occupied Polish territories and the months preceding “Operation Barbarossa” in 1941. It will focus on the way PK materials were used mainly in the visual media in order to support the propaganda strategies and their subsequent goals set by the Nazi leadership.

Debate: Images & Archive

Debate: Images & Archive

The Images & Archives debate will bring together, on 30th July, at Faculty of Social and Human Sciences (NOVA FCSH) Lisboa, a group of researchers on the history and criticism of photography and cinema who work with historical images found in colonial archives. The particular condition of these images concerning their contexts and the processes of re-contextualization they are subjected to, the challenges put to the (re)construction of their history, as well as the specificity of images as a historical media are some of the topics under discussion.

Each participant will present a specific object, whether the films of the Timor Anthropology Mission, the photographs of bodies “medicalized” by the Anthropobiology Mission of Angola, or photographs of personal files, to reflect on the unique status of these images in their complex relationship with powers or with counter-powers, in a Visual Culture perspective.

The entrance is free.

The journey is organized by the historian Silvio Marcus de Souza Correa, Senior Visiting Professor abroad (CAPES fellow) from the Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina, and by the Photo Impulse research project of ICNOVA.

Call for Papers: # 4 (37) 2019: After Post-Photography

INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF CULTURAL RESEARCH
Scientific e-journal. Issued since 2010

 

 

Why is it that as a theoretical concept indexicality is quite dead while at the same time it keeps being at the core of so many practices using and looking at photographs? Is it possible that the introduction of digital processes to photography was much less of a rupture than post-photographic discourses often assume? And could it be that photography from its very beginnings was much less about depicting realities but rather about creating them?

“Humans of Damascus” – The (Other) Art of Community (Building)

“Humans of Damascus” – The (Other) Art of Community (Building)

With “Humans of Damascus”, I did not want to create a page on Facebook. I wanted to build a community. (Rania Kataf)

 

In his inspiring book “The Art of Community”, Charles H. Vogl goes through the principles of belonging: initiation, boundaries, symbols, rituals, stories, temple and inner rings. These seven time-tested principles for emerging and connected communities could be applied entirely or in part, even to groups not physically or geographically connected. In other words, to communities interacting between real and virtual world, like “Humans of Damascus”.
