New Territories: Landscape Representation in Contemporary Photographic Practices
Humboldt University of Berlin
16, 17 and 18 June 2017
This three-day workshop gathers international scholars and artists. From different disciplinary perspectives that include art histories, architecture, geography and archeology, speakers addresses the many pressing questions that representations of natural and man-made landscapes bring into focus: the national identity of the territory, political and historical context of urban expansion and the effect Of human activity on land. The workshop also provides an opportunity to identify elements of change and continuity in contemporary development of the world as a genre, and how photography and lens-based media affect its visual models of representation.
