Proposal deadline extended until the 18th of April: Pointed or Pointless? Recalibrating the Index
Day 1 – London: 10 June 2017
Day 2 – Berlin: tbd November 2017
A conference and forum on the index in contemporary photography and image-based practice, theory and culture.
The symposium “Pointed or Pointless? Recalibrating the Index” aims to reconsider the notion of the index, its history and present-day applicability. Some recent debates – which abandon strict definitions of analogue/digital and scrutinize fixed notions of truth and medium – are taken as an opportunity to readdress the notion in the 21st century.
