Workshop To Photograph – To Think – To Publish 10 > 21 JULY HÉLICE – LISBON

To photograph, to think, to publish

This workshop is aimed to all interested with a finished photographic project, ready to be edited and published.
On a case-to-case basis, classes will evolve around specific solutions for the publication: the narrative, graphic concepts and technical possibilities for the printing process.
The workshop begins with two sessions with Paulo Arraiano (artist and designer), who will focus on InDesign software. We will approach introductory tools and more advanced ones regarding the preparation of documents for the printing purpose.
João Linneu (Void.photo) will be tutoring two weekends. On the first students will be able to discuss the narrative, sequencing and format of the images within the multiple publishing options. The second weekend will be dedicated to a theoretical discussion around design and production.
The workshop goal is to provide the ability to think and produce a project in a publishing format that suits its language, with a coherent narrative and editorial discourse. Students will be autonomous to execute the design and a dummy, if they wish to do so, always with João’s mentoring behind.
You will need a laptop with Adobe InDesign and Photoshop, files organized (to be explained later), work prints of around 10×8 cm and a short text about your project for the first class with João.
Sessions:
– 10 and 12 July 19:30 > 22:30 – Indesign with Paulo Arraiano
– 13 and 14 + 20 and 21 July 10h > 18h – Two weekends with João Linneu

AFTER POST-PHOTOGRAPHY 5 Conference, 23-25 May 2019, St. Petersburg

Conference APP. Cultural, historical and visual studies in photography

23-25 May 2019,
European University in St Petersburg

Addressing one of the most common concepts that define the nature and function of photography, the fifth edition of the conference After Post-Photography  aims to re-think the fundamental notions and offer new perspectives on the subject of photography and its connection with memory.

Memory is a notion commonly brought forward when speaking about photography. The very idea of close connection between memory and photography has long found itself at the basis of the (re)construction of histories and identities.

The photographic image, when regarded as a material evocation of memories, is supposed to not only preserve the past, but to represent a selection of moments worthy of being captured and retained. In this sense, photography has caused fundamental changes to mental structures, such as remembrance and forgetting. Its mechanics, however, is still indecisive: is photography something that evokes memory – or something that enhances oblivion? Furthermore, is a photograph something that really speaks of a moment of the past, or does it rather testify of certain modes of cultural optics? Is there still a possibility to ‘remember’ with, or through photographs? After all, the traditional belief in photography’s truthfulness, its indexical function, the freezing of a decisive moment, or proof of “what has been”, all this stands in strong contrast with the contemporary discussions on fake news, artificially constructed memories, post-reality politics and “augmented” realities.

The conference is chaired by Maria Gourieva, Olga Davydova, Natalia Mazur, Moritz Neumüller, Daria Panaiotti, and Friedrich Tietjen. It is organized in collaboration with the conference “PHOTOGRAPHY AS ART. Current trends in study and the history of national schools”, at the Russian Academy of Arts, Moscow, May 27-29, 2019.

This three-day event will feature four keynote speeches, eight presentations, and a round table, by scholars from Russia, Europe, the United States and Japan.   

Day 1 will feature two evening lectures, one by Fred Ritchin on The Post-Photographic Challenge, the other by Helen Petrovsky on Photography: Memory Formulae.

Day 2 will start with a morning panel dedicated to Photograph Politics, or: How to Show (and how to not). The afternoon will feature the panel Present Photography, or: How to Rethink Pictures. A get-together dinner will be the perfect setting to keep the discussions going on into the later hours.

Day 3 will be dedicated to the panel Photographic Projections, or: How to Show What Never Happened, and a round table discussion on Photography Studies in Russia, before we wrap up the conference in a general Q&A session.

All talks will take place at the European University in St. Petersburg, 1 Shpalernaya street / metro Chernyshevskaya

Talks and presentations will be held both in English and Russian. Simultaneous translation will be provided.

AFTER POST-PHOTOGRAPHY 4 – MODES OF PRODUCTION

Сultural, Historical and Visual Studies in Photography

16-18 May 2018, European University in St. Petersburg, Russia

That photographic media, in one way or the other, record, depict and represent truth, realities and the past, is a staple. In theory this relation has been called into question, in particular with the advent of digital image manipulation, and the doubts have been extended since to analogue photography, too. Yet despite these doubts the notion of photographs being somewhat true permeates most, if not all, practices with these media: in science and humanities, photographic images replace and represent the object of research; in an ID, the portrait connects a face and a body with a name and other personal data; photographs in family albums and books allow to look back into the past. And though it may have been the reason for recent doubts in photography’s veracity, digital photography thrives on this promise as well: we share meals with our social networks the moment they are served, video telephony lets us talk not only to a voice but a face, and GPS metadata tells us where on Earth we took a certain picture. Moreover, photography is hybridized when the camera in our smartphones becomes a scanner for QR-codes, drones are equipped with face-recognition software, and augmented reality systems transform the material world into a space and surface for digital data.

 

Under these conditions, photography has ceased to be a specific medium generating still images. It has become a dispositif in the sense of being a network of applications, institutions, materialisations and theoretical settings such as its privileged relation in representing truth – which, looking back, it has always been. The discussions concerning the re-evaluation of photography, however, usually give most attention to individual pictures as products and as depictions. What we would like to focus upon  with our next conference are the modes of the technical, optical, chemical and social conditions of pre-, post-, mass and over-production, of  the distribution, consumption, circulation and archiving of what is so commonly known as photographs. We welcome in particular submissions concerned with new theoretical and empirical approaches and perspectives on these fields. And we would be delighted to receive papers dealing with rarely researched topics such as photographic optics, photochemistry and the applications of soft- and hardware for generating photorealistic images. We plan to arrange the talks in four panels:

 

  • Ça eu été? What photography has been and will become.
  • What is needed. The material bases of photography
  • How to use them. Production, dissemination, application and perception of photographic images
  • What else is new? Photographic practices at the fringes of photography.

 

Please submit your application, including a short summary of your paper (250-400 words) in English using the following link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=app4 no later than 20 December 2017. Note that you should register at the Easychair website in order to submit your application. There is no participation fee.

We shall consider the possibility of online participation for a limited number of participants. The working languages of the conference are Russian and English. Conference materials are planned for publication in 2018-2019. For programs of After Post-Photography since 2015 and past publications, please see http://www.after-post.photography

We would appreciate it if you would circulate the call to your own networks and other mailing lists.

Convocatoria de trabajos, para conferencia

DESPUÉS DE LA POST-FOTOGRAFÍA 4 – MODOS DE PRODUCCIÓN

Estudios culturales, históricos y visuales en fotografía

16 -18 de mayo de 2018, Universidad Europea de San Petersburgo, Rusia

El medio fotográfico de una u otra manera, registra, representa y plasma la verdad, las realidades y el pasado, como un elemento fundamental. En teoría, esta relación se ha puesto en tela de juicio, en particular con la aparición de la manipulación de la imagen digital y las dudas se han extendido desde entonces también a la fotografía analógica. Sin embargo, a pesar de estas dudas, la noción de fotografía como algo verdadero impregna la mayoría, si no todas, las prácticas: en ciencia y humanidades. Las imágenes fotográficas sustituyen y representan el objeto de la investigación; como identificación, el retrato conecta un rostro y un cuerpo con un nombre y otros datos personales; las fotografías en álbumes y libros de familia permiten mirar hacia atrás en el pasado. Y aunque puede haber sido el motivo de la recientes dudas sobre la veracidad de la fotografía, la fotografía digital también se basa en esta promesa también. Compartimos las comidas con nuestras redes sociales en el momento en que se sirven, la videotelefonía nos permite hablar no sólo con una voz sino con una cara, y los metadatos GPS nos dicen en qué lugar de la Tierra tomamos una determinada foto. Además, la fotografía se hibrida cuando la cámara de nuestros smartphones se convierte en un escáner para códigos QR, los drones están equipados con software de reconocimiento facial y los sistemas de realidad aumentada transforman el mundo material en un espacio y una superficie para datos digitales.

En estas condiciones, la fotografía ha dejado de ser un medio específico para generar imágenes fijas. Se ha convertido en un dispositivo en el sentido de ser una red de aplicaciones, instituciones, materializaciones y escenarios teóricos como su relación privilegiada en la representación de la verdad -que, mirando hacia atrás, siempre lo ha sido. Sin embargo, los debates sobre la reevaluación de la fotografía, sin embargo, por lo general prestan la mayor atención a las imágenes individuales como productos y como representaciones.

Lo que nos gustaría destacar en nuestra próxima conferencia son los modos de las condiciones técnicas, ópticas, químicas y sociales de pre, post, producción y sobreproducción del medio, la distribución, consumo, circulación y archivo de lo que comúnmente se conoce como fotografías. Son especialmente bienvenidas, los proyectos relativas a nuevos enfoques teóricos y empíricos y las perspectivas sobre estos ámbitos. Y nos encantaría recibir trabajos sobre temas raramente investigados como la óptica fotográfica, la fotoquímica y las aplicaciones de soft- y hardware para la generación de imágenes fotorealistas. Planeamos organizar las charlas en cuatro paneles:

– Qué fue? Lo que la fotografía ha sido y será.

– Lo que se necesita. Las bases materiales de la fotografía.

– Cómo usarlas. Producción, difusión, aplicación y percepción de imágenes fotográficas.

– ¿Qué hay de nuevo? Prácticas fotográficas al margen de la fotografía.

 

Por favor envíe su solicitud, incluyendo un breve resumen de su trabajo (250-400 palabras) en inglés utilizando el siguiente enlace: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=app4 a más tardar el 20 de diciembre de 2017. Tenga en cuenta que debe registrarse en el sitio web de Easychair para enviar su solicitud. No hay cuota de participación.
