IMPACT 8 International Printmaking Conference: A celebration of interdisciplinarity and exploration through the medium of print

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in conference


Presentation of academic paper: How is the ‘field’ of photography, namely photography’s documentary, social and political efficacy and presumed realism constructed? In which way does the use of or reference to print alter or reinforce photography’s realism or documentary force? Is the ‘form’, that is the visual appearance, closely linked and sometimes identified with a particular medium, foregrounded? How does this imply the handling of technique/technology or craft of the respective media? In which way may particular qualities or even ontological conditions that are associated with both media intermesh or collide in order to thematise a problematics of vision?
