This event is part of our Past Programme
What do we learn when we look at photography through the lens of collaboration? Photographers Susan Meiselas and Wendy Ewald and historian Laura Wexler consider the process of image-making as conceived within the context of collaboration. Through collective effort and action as practitioners, subjects and viewers, we look at our involvement across different participatory and co-production models and various themes such as coercion and cooperation, gender and race. The talk will be chaired by curator and publisher Chris Boot.
This talk coincides with the release of Collaboration: A Potential History of Photography (Thames & Hudson, 2023).
Details on how to access the talk will be confirmed upon registration. Please check your junk folders if you haven't received an email from TPG confirming your place.
