PHOTOGRAPHY AS AN ART: Current trends in study and the history of national schools

Research Institute of Theory and History of Fine Arts
Moscow Museum of Modern Art

Partners of the Conference:
Instituto Europeo di Design, Madrid, Spain

May 27-29, 2019
Venue: Russian Academy of Arts, Moscow, Russia

Photography is one of the oldest image-making technologies in the modern world. Generations of artists and viewers have grown up surrounded by photography. It is everywhere. Photography is both established and dynamic.
In the context of the massive technological changes sweeping across contemporary visual culture, the place of photography may appear less significant. It even brings to mind the situation of 180 years ago where, during the presentation of a new type of image-making – photography – to the public, an onlooker exclaimed: “Today, painting died!” But it is photography that freed painters to create a new kind of art, the medium of painting transformed but still just as vital and relevant. Similarly, the evolution of technology in relation to photography allows us, first, to clarify what photography actually is in today’s world, and second, to attempt an understanding of the relationship between photography and contemporary art.
Since the beginning of the XXI century, there is no doubt among educated viewers and visual culture researchers that specific expressions of photography qualify it as an art. But, to date, there has been insufficient development of the history of the national schools of photography. This history is especially essential for young researchers and creators. There are histories of regional photography venues and national schools that have never been written. In Russia, it was in the mid-twentieth century that the structure of how the history of photography was represented was established and, since then, this concept of history has remained unchanged.
This conference does not propose revisionism. Rather, the goal is to open a discussion on the methods and strategies for writing the history of photography from around the world.
The title of the conference includes the phrase “history of national schools [of photographies]”. Organizers of the conference understand such schools to encompass a double meaning. First of all, it suggests the definition of regional specifics, the phenomenology of reflection on the history and culture of the regions, states and nations in the formation of regional photography. Second, schools suggest the educational process within the studies of modern art and humanities, where photography is both an educational tool and the subject of study.

Thus, the conference “Photography as an art: Current trends in study and the history of national schools” covers three main areas:
– the study of photography as a medium and the scope of its realization as an art;
– the methods and practices for writing national photography histories;
– the teaching of photography, its history and technology, within art education and the study of photography in the educational context of the humanities.

The aim of this meeting of experts is to define the current state of theory and research in the field, and also to create a foundation for future scholarship and study.

This conference is held in partnership with the editorial board of Routledge Companion to Photography and Visual Culture and the 5th International conference After Post-Photography, May 23-25 in St. Petersburg.

Conference working languages: Russian, English.
Time-limit: reports – 20 minutes. Within the framework of the conference round table – 10 minutes.
Applications are accepted in Russian and English. Abstracts will be published before the conference.
Applications are accepted until 00:00 April 25, 2019 at the email address mos.photo.conference2019@gmail.com
Contact person: Irina Chmyreva, PhD, executive chairman of the organizing committee of the conference
