On April 22nd and 23rd at Princeton, a conference: “BEND! Photography, Gender and the Politics of Representation” (PDF poster). There are talks by George Baker, Emily Roysdon, Maite Zubiaurre. Description:
How has the evolution of photography—from b/w to color, from analogue to digital, from mass media to social media—served to articulate or blur aesthetic and subjective differences? What politics of representation emerge when the individual can be both agent and object of photographic voyeurism, exhibitionism, and surveillance? Might photography’s expanded field offer the potential for reshaping feminist politics today? We invite participants to explore historical, existing and possible relationships between photography and the (re)production of gender, from the perspectives of visual culture, philosophy, (art) history, and art practice.
