The Image’s Power

Time Friday 11 October, 2019 at 08:45 - 21:00
Place Bildmuseet

10-11 October
Bildmuseet / Sune Jonsson Centrum för dokumentärfotografi

In this year’s photo seminar we meet photographers and artists from different parts of the world who talk about their work and their thoughts on illuminating and questioning power structures in society. All interpersonal relations are characterised by social hierarchies and power relationships of various kinds. Visual artists and documentary photographers must deal with these but also recognise the power they themselves possess.

The seminar takes place in two places: Bildmuseet and the Sune Jonsson Centre for Documentary Photography at Västerbottens museum. It is a collaboration addressing how power structures are examined and portrayed in documentary photography and the visual arts.
