Symposium "RETHINKING PHOTOGRAPHY: Can Photography Make a Change?"

Symposium "RETHINKING PHOTOGRAPHY: Can Photography Make a Change?"

"Rethinking Photography” aims to give space for the discovery of ideas that define the contemporary thought, through the presence of artists from several territories of photography. Artists, historians and curators review the place of photography nowadays and, through their speeches, we will get to know the cultural and scientific practices that help us to think about the current representations of photography and the restrains in our roads to happiness. This multi- disciplinary gathering will explore topics ranging from the impact of technology in our lives, to documentary projects on the new ways of life in the pursuit of happiness, going through the autobiographical projects, all questioning the power of photography in contemporary times.
