PHOTOMEDIATIONS: A SYMPOSIUM AND BOOK LAUNCH
19 February 2016, 3pm-7pm
Goldsmiths, University of London, Room PSH326
FREE AND OPEN TO ALL. NO NEED TO REGISTER.
Come and join us for a half-day symposium exploring the relationship between photography and other media, and celebrating the launch of the open access book, Photomediations: A Reader (Open Humanities Press, 2016), edited by Kamila Kuc and Joanna Zylinska (free to download): http://www.openhumanitiespress.org/books/titles/photomediations/
The concept of photomediations brings together the hybrid ontology of ‘light-based media’ and the fluid dynamism of ‘mediation’. The papers presented in the symposium will challenge the traditional classification of photography as suspended between art and social practice in order to capture the dynamism of the photographic medium today. They will also explore photography’s kinship with other media – and with us, humans, as media.

NB. Due to Crossrail works there will be no London Overground service to Goldsmiths on 19.02: you’ll need to take a replacement bus, or travel one stop on the train from London Bridge to New Cross instead.
The Reader and the symposium are part of the activities of Europeana Space, a project funded by the European Union's ICT Policy Support Programme under GA n° 621037.
