The Civil Contract of Photography by Ariella Azoulay
Thu 19 July, 18.30
Join us for an open discussion of The Civil Contract of Photography by Ariella Azoulay, focusing on Chapter 2.
In this groundbreaking work, Ariella Azoulay provides a compelling rethinking of the political and ethical status of photography. In her extraordinary account of the civil contract of photography, she thoroughly revises our understanding of the power relations that sustain and make possible photographic meanings. Photography, she insists, must be thought of and understood in its inseparability from the many catastrophes of recent history.
